Cardiac CT Imaging

In line with our commitment to provide world-class facilities and deliver excellence in clinical care, San Radiology recently installed the cardiac-capable Siemens FORCE CT Scanner (384-slice, Dual Source). In March 2015, in a world-first, San Radiology achieved the lowest dose of radiation ever reported for Cardiac CT imaging, according to the supplier Siemens Healthcare. Our average dose for Cardiac CT is significantly lower than the safety reference guidelines used for CT in Australia (in many instances up to 98% lower).

This Siemens FORCE CT produces extremely high quality and resolution images of the heart and its blood supply in less than 5 seconds. Our experienced and subspecialised Radiologists (with Level II Accreditation by the Conjoint Committee for the Recognition of Training in CT Coronary Angiography) and CT Radiographers have been pioneers and industry leaders in the field of Cardiac CT in Australia. San Radiology has performed approximately 10,000 Cardiac CT examinations since the commencement of our Cardiac CT service in 2006, the year in which San Radiology was the first in Australia to install a dual-source CT scanner.
