The centre offers the latest 640-slice CT scanner technology which images the entire heart in 0.275 seconds, providing a complete diagnostic heart assessment in a single heartbeat.
The CT Coronary Angiogram is an imaging test that looks at the arteries which supply blood to your heart. It is a safe test used to find out if your coronary arteries are narrowed or becoming blocked.
Purpose-built for cardiac diagnosis and treatment, St Joseph’s Centre for Advanced Diagnostics offers the most advanced cardiac diagnostic imaging capability available.
The St Joseph’s Cardiology Centre offers a chest pain clinic and a heart rhythm clinic.
Coronary heart disease is the most common cause of premature death in the UK with 1 in 7 men and 1 in 10 women dying from the disease.
Cardiovascular (heart and circulatory) disease causes more than a quarter of all deaths in the UK - an average of 425 people die each day from the disease, that is one every three minutes.
Those statistics can of course be changed by the early detection and treatment of coronary heart disease, and St Joseph’s Hospital offers the most advanced specialist cardiovascular imaging and screening available anywhere in the UK.
We understand how worrying heart problems are for our patients, and that is why appointments to our One Stop Cardiac Centre are available without delay, and because we are a ‘One Stop’ centre the majority of your diagnostic testing can be undertaken in the same visit.
With a GP or consultant referral you can be seen at the Cardiology Centre by one of our team of specialist consultants without delay. You can self-refer for a Cardiac Assessment and see a private GP.
In addition you can discuss your cardiac requirements with our experienced Health Assessment team and subsequently book a cardiovascular health assessment without a GP referral at any time. Simply call our Health Assessment team on 01633 820301 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
