Call (970) 810-6070 for times and to schedule an appointment.
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. And, because it works more than seven times faster than a conventional CT scan, the motion of the heart and blood does not blur the pictures it creates. By analyzing images of the coronary arteries, a cardiologist can determine how much calcified plaque the arteries contain.
What To Expect:
• A 10 minute wellness 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.
• During your exam, you will lie in your clothing on a table with a donut-shaped scanner around your chest. The scanner takes a picture of your heart while you hold your breath for approximately 20 seconds. The information acquired during your CT exam is then interpreted by a radiologist. A report is sent to the physician designated at the time of scheduling.
• After your heart score is finished, we will mail your results to you.
