Cardiac Imaging

Cardiac Imaging is a sub-speciality of radiology and covers a range of services which all capture images of your heart and heart valves. These images are captured using techniques such as X-rays, ultrasounds (echocardiograms), CT (computerised tomography) scans, and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scans.
