  • Short procedure time. Out patient procedure not requiring admission and is pain free.
  • Additional calcium scoring is performed before the main angiography which provides assessment of the cardiovascular risk

  • Excluding/assessment of coronary artery anomalies
  • Assessment of coronary bypass grafts patency
  • Pericardial disease
  • Cardiac masses
