Coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA)


This test has advantages in that it is non-invasive and provides additional information on your overall risk of heart disease. However, the overall test accuracy is less proven than invasive coronary angiography. Furthermore, not all patients can have accurate images taken so the decision to undergo testing is typically made in conjunction with a heart specialist (cardiologist).
