We Won’t Miss a Beat, so You Won’t Miss a Beat
This non-evasive procedure is a method of assessing the risk of Coronary Artery Disease, which involves a simple CT scan of the heart. And 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.
Am I at Risk?
The following factors may increase your risk for heart disease and, ultimately, a heart attack.
Check all boxes that apply to you:
You are male and over 45 years old.
You are female and over 55 years old, or you have passed menopause or had your ovaries removed and are not taking estrogen.
Your father or brother had a heart attack before age 55 or your mother or sister had one before the age of 65.
You smoke or you live/work with someone who smokes daily.
You have a cholesterol level of 240 mg/dL or higher.
You have been told your blood pressure is high.
You do not exercise on a regular basis for at least 30 minutes.
You are 20 pounds or more overweight.
You have diabetes or you need medicine to control your blood sugar.
If you checked two or more boxes, you may be at risk for heart disease, and this exam may be a good next step to assess your risk more completely.
What should you expect during the exam?
You will be lying comfortably on the exam table for about five minutes, though the scan takes only seconds.
There’s no need to change your clothes, but all jewelry and metal items must be removed.
Electrocardiogram leads will be placed on your chest to synchronize the scan with your heartbeats.
You will be asked to hold your breath for a few seconds during scanning.
There is no special preparation for the exam, no fasting, no injections, no ceasing of medications.
