How Do 心脏扫描s Work?

Heart scans provide early detection of heart disease, even when symptoms may not be present. A heart scan takes pictures of your heart's arteries, allowing physicians to check for coronary artery disease, which occurs when plaque builds up in the arteries. These scans are quick and painless, lasting about 15 minutes.

我们的 heart scans are $49. We provide the option to request a scan for yourself onlinesend a virtual scan gift card 给你爱的人.

Who Should Have These 放映?


You should get a heart scan if you:

  • Are 40 years or older
  • Have high blood pressure or cholesterol
  • 有糖尿病
  • Have a family history of heart disease
  • Are overweight or obese
  • Have a history of smoking

If you are at low risk of a heart attack, or if you have already had a heart attack or coronary heart disease treatment, a heart scan may not be effective. 例如, if you are under 40, don't smoke and have normal cholesterol and blood pressure, a heart scan is not necessary. If you've had a heart attack in the past, a heart scan will not provide any new information about your treatment plan that your physician won't already know.

The above criteria are recommended but not required for scheduling a heart scan.
