Coronary Calcium Screening: Test Your Heart Disease Risk

Every 25 seconds, someone in the U.S. experiences a heart attack or coronary event. Do you know your risk?

Heart & Cardiovascular Services introduces Coronary Calcium Scanning, an easy, 15-minute test that is up to 10 times more accurate at predicting your heart attack risk than traditional diagnostic methods, such as measuring blood cholesterol levels. A calcium scan can help your physician determine additional diagnostics, and the types of preventive therapies or treatment you might need.
