Heart Disease Facts
58 million Americans have one or more forms of cardiovascular disease, making coronary artery disease (CAD) the number one killer of men and women in the United States. More Americans die of heart disease than all types of cancer combined.
Heart Health Screening
CT Heart Health screening (Calcium Scoring) detects coronary artery disease. It measures the amount of calcified (hardened) plaque in the coronary arteries.
This exam can be used as a valuable tool in conjunction with other clinical risk factors such as family history, cholesterol level, lipid profile, etc. to help your doctor determine what type of treatment you may need to live a healthy life.
