Diagnostics Heart Healthy CT Scan

The Heart Healthy CT Scan is a simple, painless test that can help determine your risk for heart disease and stroke. The test is performed using a CT (computed tomography) scanner and identifies your coronary calcium score. This is a measure used to estimate the amount of cholesterol plaque in your arteries. A higher score can mean a higher likelihood of suffering a heart attack. Fortunately, early detection of heart disease makes early intervention possible.

Heart Healthy CT is recommended for men age 40+ and women age 45+ with one or more of these heart disease risk factors:

  • Hypertension (blood pressure greater than 140/90)
  • Cholesterol level greater than 160/LDL
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Tobacco use
  • Family history of heart disease

Please review our Frequently Asked Questions for more information. Further diagnostic studies, if needed, may be covered by insurance.
