At Franciscan Health we believe that early detection is one of our best tools. Our heart scan imaging technology keeps us a step ahead of heart disease. In 10 minutes the non-invasive scan can help your doctor determine your risk for heart disease.
A heart scan is a non-invasive procedure that assesses the risk of coronary artery disease. While it only takes about 10 minutes to perform, it's the most advanced heart scan of its kind, offering greater accuracy and detail than other traditional CT scans. Most importantly, it could save your life.
The low cost heart scan helps determine your risk of heart disease. When you have this advance warning, you can change how you live your life to reduce your chances of having a devastating cardiovascular incident. The results of your exam represent peace of mind, since early detection is key to prevention. Considering over half the people who died suddenly of heart disease had no symptoms, what you know today can help save your life.
Calcification in the coronary arteries is the earliest indicator of heart disease. The heart scan uses noninvasive, high-speed computerized tomography (CT) to scan your heart and detect calcium deposits along the walls of the arteries. A coronary artery calcium scoring exam produces a score that identifies your level of deposits. Additional factors such as age, family history and cholesterol level, enable your doctor to measure your potential for heart disease.
