Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (CVCT)

Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (CVCT) is one of the most rapidly developing techniques for assessing Cardiovascular Anatomy. The complex nature of the imaging devices and anatomy as well as the rapidly advancing uses of these modalities requires the Cardiologist invest many hours on training, education and experience to obtain and master the skills necessary to become an expert in this new and evolving discipline. Dr. Trazzera, a Founding Physician Scientist/ Member of the Society for Cardiovascular Computed Tomography is recognized as an expert in this field. He has obtained training in Vascular Imaging with CT and has obtained Level III Training in Cardiovascular Computed Tomography under the mentorship of Dr. Micheal Poon, a world renowned leader in the field of Cardiovascular CT at Stony Brook University Medical Center. Dr. Trazzera is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Radiology in the School of Medicine at the State University of New York at Stony Brook and is one of only a handful of Cardiologist’s in the region who is Board Certified in CVCT (CBCCT) and a Fellow of the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography (FSCCT).


St. Joseph Hospital moves into the future in 2015. Through the leadership of Dr. Trazzera and in Partnership with St. Francis Hospital ‘The Heart Center’ a state of the art Non Invasive Cardiovascular Imaging Center is scheduled to open in the latter half of 2015. The St. Francis Hospital Advanced Cardiovascular Imaging Center will include Cardiovascular Computed Tomography, Cardiac and Vascular Ultrasound and Nuclear Cardiology Stress Testing. This Advanced Imaging Center will be the first of its kind at a community hospital in Long Island. Additionally Dr. Trazzera will perform consultative cardiology services at St. Joseph Hospital outpatient Cardiology Clinic in addition to his community based office in nearby Farmingdale.

St. Joseph Hospital also looks forward to the opening of the first ‘Sports & Exercise Cardiology Program’ in Long Island in 2015. Stay tuned for further details.
