Heart Age Test

CT Heart Score
CT Heart Score is a screening used to detect the presence of coronary artery diseas. Heart Score provides computed tomography (CT) cardiac scoring, a noninvasive test that accurately measures the amount of calcified plaque in the arteries.

The procedure begins with a fast, painless CT exam. CT, more commonly known as CAT scanning, uses X-rays and multiple detectors to create interior images of the heart.  By analyzing images of the coronary arteries, a cardiologist can determine how much calcified plaque the arteries contain.

A 10-minute consultation with a Wellness Specialist is included. The
consultation will focus on cardiac risk factor education, identification of non-modifiable and modifiable risks, and lifestyle behavior change options.

After your heart score is finished, we will share the results with you. If your coronary calcium score is high, you will be able to meet with a
CardioVascular Institute provider to discuss what your next steps should be.

PAD (ABI) Screening
Find out if you are at risk of peripheral arterial disease (PAD).  If you have PAD, you have greater risk of having a heart attack, and those who have blockages in their coronary arteries have a greater risk of PAD.  Other risks for PAD include:  previous or current smoking; diabetes; leg discomfort  or leg fatigue when walking a short distance.  If you are at risk for PAD, you will be scheduled for a free ABI (ankle brachial index) screening.
