Reasons for Test
EBCT is useful for screening people for coronary heart disease (CHD). It can be used before or after symptoms (such as chest pain) actually appear. This is important because, for many people, the first sign of CHD is a heart attack.
It can be used to:
- Determine the risk of CHD in people with no symptoms
- Determine likelihood of CHD in people with abnormal chest pain
