Coronary CTAOffering Lowest Radiation Dose Capability.
As guided by our Mission Statement, Fairfax Radiology is committed to the lowest radiation exposure we can achieve. Recent commentary has highlighted attention to risk for CT Scanning, most especially the Coronary CTA procedures. Consideration of the dose verses the benefit is the key factor in determining a patientís choice to have a heart evaluation. Because it is in the patientís best interest, our radiologists have insisted that all opportunities be pursued to improve dose reduction without loss of image quality.
Our Coronary CTA procedures are performed on GE equipment with the latest Dose reduction software, ASIR-V
