Overview

Cardiac CT scanning with angiography (CTA) can be helpful in detecting the complication of heart failure, as well excluding ischemia as a cause of dilated cardiomyopathy (calcium coronary score and myocardial perfusion analysis).

CT scan

Cardiac CT scanning with angiography (CTA) can be useful to:
