Target Patient Population

  • Asymptomatic patients with recognized cardiac risk factors (e.g. hypertension, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, smoking history, or a family history of heart disease)
  • Symptomatic patients who have chest pain, an unclear clinical presentation or indeterminate or confusing prior non-invasive cardiac tests
  • Patients with cardiac vascular anomalies
  • Patients with bypass grafts
  • Patients with evidence of abnormal cardiac structure by other non-invasive cardiac tests (e.g. cardiac mass, atrial or ventricular septal defects, arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia, valvular disease)
  • Patients with congenital heart disease (e.g. to assess cardiac and vascular anatomy)
  • Patients with potential for pulmonary venous abnormalities (e.g. post pulmonary vein ablation/isolation to assess for pulmonary vein stenosis)
