ZP Loves Hearts!
In honor of February, we at Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology want to remind you of the services we can provide you and your cardiac health.
CT Calcium Scoring
Performed in Lynbrook, Merrick, Lindenhurst, West Islip, Plainview and Stony Brook.
Calcium scoring is a noninvasive way to view your coronary arteries and help identify the location and extent of calcified plaque. A buildup of plaque may indicate coronary artery disease (CAD) which can narrow arteries, reduce blood flow to the heart, and lead to an increased risk for heart attack. The scan is designed for undiagnosed people and can show whether you’re at risk before symptoms occur.
Performed in Massapequa, Medford and Smithtown East.
A non-invasive and painless sonogram of the heart which exposes the patient to no radiation. Zwanger-Pesiri is ICAEL Accredited for Echocardiography. Identifies cardiac tumors, masses and endocarditis, as well as wall thickness, congenital defects and heart anatomy
Performed in Massapequa. Measures blood flow to the heart muscle and evaluates heart function during rest and exercise. Determines the need for coronary CTA or cardiac catheterization. Identifies blocked coronary arteries and evaluates efficacy of prior coronary bypass grafts and angioplasty
Performed in East Setauket
A non-invasive exam that does not expose you to any radiation. A cardiac MRI is used to evaluate the anatomy and function of the heart, valves and major blood vessels, as well as the surrounding structures and the effects of coronary artery disease. A cardiac MRI is also used when the results from a nuclear stress test or echocardiogram are unclear
Coronary CT Angiography
Performed in Lynbrook, Plainview, Smithtown East, Stony Brook and West Islip Creates complete images of blood vessels in heart, as well as other body parts such as the lungs, kidneys, arms and legs. Detects narrowed coronary arteries which increase the risk of heart attack. Low radiation, no incision, no catheterization and extremely short scan times. Recommended for symptomatic patients with unclear nuclear stress test results, and patients with a family history cardiovascular disease
