Cardiothoracic Imaging

Cardiothoracic imaging is a specialized field within radiology focused on the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and conditions affecting the chest, including the heart, lungs, mediastinum (the space between the lungs), thoracic wall, and great vessels. This imaging modality utilizes various techniques such as X-rays, computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and nuclear medicine imaging to visualize and assess abnormalities in the cardiothoracic region.

Cardiothoracic imaging plays a crucial role in the diagnosis, treatment planning, and monitoring of patients with a wide range of cardiothoracic disorders, helping clinicians make informed decisions about patient care.
