Computed Tomography (CT Scan)

Computed tomography, also known as CT scan or CAT scan, uses computer-processed X-rays to produce tomographic images or “slices” of specific organs and areas of the body.

Time is critical during a heart attack. The longer it takes to get treated, the more badly damaged the heart will be. Get to the hospital quickly by calling 9-1-1. Do not attempt to drive yourself.
