Heart disease remains that leading cause of death in Australia, accounting for 11.6% of all deaths in 2017 (ABS, Sept 2018). However, the number of deaths from ischaemic heart disease has been steadily decreasing over the last decade. This is due to a combination of early diagnosis, risk factor management and improved treatment options.
St Vincent’s Hospital has long been at the forefront of innovation in the treatment and management of heart disease. The Advanced Cardiac Imaging Centre (ACIC) is the newest resource dedicated to specialised imaging of the heart. Opening in March 2019, ACIC has the latest generation cardiac CT and cardiac MRI scanners, which will be used for a combination of patient care and clinical research.
• CT coronary angiography (cardiac CT)
• Cardiac MRI
• Coronary artery calcium scoring
The Advanced Cardiac Imaging Centre is part of the Cardiology Department at St Vincent’s Hospital. The reporting cardiologists have many years’ experience in cardiac CT / MRI reporting and send the results to your referring doctor(s) on the day of your scan. The reporting cardiologists include:
• Prof Michael Feneley (CT)
• A/Prof Cameron Holloway (MRI)
• A/Prof Andrew Jabbour (MRI)
• A/Prof Jane McCrohon (CT/MRI)
• A/Prof Neville Sammel (CT)
