Electron Beam Angiography

What is Electron Beam Angiography?

Printer Friendly Version

Electron Beam Angiography (EBA) is a non-invasive way to detect blockages in or narrowing of the coronary arteries.  EBA uses a specialised CT scanner to take 3D images of the heart and view the arteries.  This method is an easy painless alternative to coronary angiography which requires local anaesthetic and a minor invasive procedure.

How do I know if I need the test?

You will be advised by our doctors whether you need an EBA.  However, if you have had chest pain or angina, or previous cardiac events you may benefit from this test.  In addition patients who have had cardiac by-pass surgery or previous angioplasty can use EBA as a follow-up scan.

 How do I prepare for the test?

No preparation is needed for this scan.  No fasting, gowns or needles.

What will happen during the test?

You will be taken into the scanning room and asked to lie down on the scanning bed.  The scanning procedure will take about 30 minutes.

What will the test result tell me?

The test result will provide a 3D image of the heart showing any blockages on narrowing of the arteries. 

What happens next?

Depending on your EBA result you will receive recommendations on whether further tests or procedures are needed and how to manage existing disease.
