Monitor your health by participating in our monthly blood screening.
Bone Density Screening
This screening uses low-cost ultrasound to determine your risk for osteoporosis and low bone mass. Early detection is key in the prevention of osteoporosis.
This simple non-invasive test measures the percentage of fat and muscle in your body. A weight range based on healthy proportions of fat and muscle will be suggested.
This 30 minute screening includes an indirect calorimeter measurement and a consultation with a Wellness Specialist. Result provide an oxygen consumption value (VO2) and a resting metabolic rate (RMR) in calories per day to aid in managing weight.
This non-fasting finger-stick glucose screening determines your risk for developing diabetes.
CT Heart Score
CT Heart Score is a screening used to detect the presence of coronary artery disease. 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 Dr. John Drury, our local board-certified cardiologist to discuss what your next steps should be.
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.
