Heart disease continues to be a leading cause of death worldwide, making accurate diagnosis and timely treatment crucial for saving lives.
SeeBeyond Medicine, in partnership with Cleerly, is revolutionizing the field of cardiovascular care by offering AI-enhanced CT angiogram services.
This innovative approach provides a precise and comprehensive diagnostic tool for identifying and treating heart disease.
In this blog post, we will explore the power of AI-enhanced CT angiograms and how it is transforming the landscape of heart disease diagnosis and treatment.
Understanding CT Angiography
CT angiogram, or computed tomography angiography, is a non-invasive diagnostic imaging technique that provides detailed images of blood vessels and the heart.
Unlike traditional angiograms and cardiac catheterization, CT angiography offers a less invasive and safer alternative for diagnosing heart disease.
With the ability to capture high-resolution images of blood vessels and coronary arteries, CT angiography can detect arterial blockages, plaque buildup, and other abnormalities that may contribute to heart disease.
The Role of Computed Tomography in CT Angiogram
Computed tomography (CT) is an advanced imaging technology that uses X-ray technology to produce detailed, cross-sectional images of the body.
In the context of CT angiography, this technology allows healthcare professionals to visualize the vascular system in a non-invasive manner.
The high-resolution 3D images produced by CT scanners provide an accurate representation of the coronary arteries, enabling the early detection and evaluation of arterial blockages and heart disease.
AI Enhance CT Angiogram
Cleerly is a digital healthcare company dedicated to transforming the way clinicians approach the treatment of heart disease. Their AI-based digital care platform works in conjunction with coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) imaging to provide precise and tailored diagnostic information for patients.
By using their technology at SeeBeyond Medicine, we can bring AI-enhanced CT angiogram services to a wider audience, enabling more people to benefit from this cutting-edge diagnostic tool.
CT Angiogram Procedure
Undergoing a CT angiogram is a straightforward process that begins with the collection of relevant medical records and consultation with healthcare professionals.
Before the procedure, patients are given an intravenous injection of iodine-based contrast material, which helps to enhance the visibility of the blood vessels and coronary arteries in the images captured by the CT scanner.
During the procedure, patients’ heart rate, blood pressure, and blood flow are closely monitored to ensure their safety and comfort. CT angiography exposes patients to a small amount of radiation, but the benefits of early detection and accurate diagnosis of heart disease often outweigh the risks associated with radiation exposure.
Identifying and Defining Atherosclerosis with AI-Enhanced CT Angiogram
Atherosclerosis, or the buildup of plaque in the heart’s arteries, is a major contributing factor to heart disease.
The AI-enhanced CT angiogram offered by SeeBeyond Medicine and Cleerly allows healthcare professionals to measure atherosclerosis directly, rather than relying on indirect markers such as risk factors and symptoms of the disease.
This advanced diagnostic tool enables clinicians to develop personalized treatment plans based on the precise evaluation of each patient’s heart health.
The AI technology used in Cleerly’s digital care platform streamlines the evaluation and reporting process, providing a faster and more accurate diagnosis.
By combining the power of AI with the high-resolution images captured by CT angiography, healthcare professionals can make informed decisions about the best course of treatment for their patients.
