Patients who have had a coronary artery scan can have it done anywhere from Memphis to Munich, and still have confidence that that number means the same thing.
In studies reflecting results in tens of thousands of patient examinations, the predictive accuracy and high sensitivity of the EBT coronary artery scan for the detection of sub-clinical coronary artery disease has been confirmed in both asymptomatic subjects and in those with a higher likelihood of heart disease.
This important research finding clearly demonstrates significantly better test specificity (the ability to produce a normal result in those persons without cardiac disease) for the EBT coronary artery scan for calcification than had previously been thought.
The high-speed, low radiation EBCT body scan includes the coronary artery scan (heart scan), the lung scan, an abdominal-pelvic scan and a quantitative CT bone density scan.
