Cardiac MRI

 

Heartscan Australia is a premium provider for cardiac MRI.

Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a highly accurate and non-invasive medical imaging technique used to visualise detailed internal structures of the heart and blood vessels. It is a well-established diagnostic test for the assessment of a range of heart and vascular disease.

The MRI scanners act as large magnets providing assessments of both heart tissue structure and function by using the magnetic signals from the hydrogen atoms within the heart. These scans do not use harmful radiation or carry any risk of causing cancer. This form of imaging is very safe for most patients.
