Advanced cardiac imaging using state of the art magnetic resonance (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) technology available here at Stony Brook enables our physicians unsurpassed image clarity and infinitive viewing angle of the heart and vascular structures. These two imaging techniques help solve many difficult and challenging clinical problems in cardiovascular medicine without invasion of the body. Cardiac CT is the most accurate non-invasive imaging method for ruling out the presence of coronary artery disease. Cardiac MRI is considered the gold standard for the evaluation of cardiac function and viability. At Stony Brook, we have the world's most advanced cardiac CT scanners that are able to diagnose the presence or absence of coronary artery disease using less radiation than one gets from the sun in a single year. Certain clinical diagnoses, such as congenital coronary or cardiac anomalies - potentially deadly forms of cardiac malformations present at birth- are diagnosed without any radiation at all using our state-of-the-art cardiac MRI scanners.
