Why Yale Medicine?
  • We have the highest-quality CT scan equipment.
  • Our CT scan technology uses substantially less radiation.
  • A cardiologist and a radiologist examine every scan to make an accurate diagnosis.

Computerized tomography, also known as CT scan, is a diagnostic modality capable of taking images of blood vessels, bones, internal organs and structures. 

Yale Medicine cardiac imagers are specially trained to interpret cardiac CT scans to help diagnose a range of cardiovascular conditions such as coronary artery disease. It's a life-threatening condition caused by a buildup of fat, cholesterol, calcium and other substances in the arteries, which supply blood to the heart.

"At Yale Medicine, we are committed to providing the highest-quality equipment and the highest quality of care," says Hamid Mojibian, MD, director of cardiac CT/MRI Imaging at Yale Medicine and associate professor of radiology and biomedical imaging at Yale School of Medicine. He and a team of radiologists and cardiologists perform many cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and CT studies, including scans for diagnosis of coronary artery disease.

Clinical Trials

New treatments for many conditions are tested in clinical trials, which ultimately bring lifesaving new drugs and devices to the patients who need them most. By participating in a clinical trial, you may get access to the most advanced treatments for your condition, and help determine their benefits for future patients.
