HeartSmart CT Scan
Every year, millions of Americans suffer a sudden heart attack, with nearly one-third not surviving the event. This does not need to happen. HeartSmart CT Scan – now available at Parkview LaGrange Hospital – is a simple, non-invasive scan that can detect coronary artery disease in its early stages. No injections, special preparations, or pain are involved in this test.
HeartSmart CT Scan takes a stop-motion picture of the heart and coronary arteries, showing the presence of any calcified or hardened plaque. The scan reveals a cross-sectional image of the heart, which the cardiologist and radiologist can then view from many perspectives to look for these early warning signs of heart disease.
A HeartSmart CT Scan is available without a physician’s referral. The cost of a HeartSmart CT Scan is only $50, including the cardiologist and radiologist fees. Be certain to check with your insurance company for possible reimbursement.
Call (877) 225-5747 to schedule your HeartSmart CT Scan.
Critical Care Unit and eICU®
The eICU® program, a hallmark of critical care at all Parkview hospitals, brings a higher level of care to critically ill patients, making it possible for them to be cared for close to home and loved ones. Each private eICU® room is equipped with special monitoring systems and cameras that transmit patient data to the local nursing station and to a board-certified intensivist, or critical care specialist.

Restful, restorative sleep is essential for your health and wellness. Without it, you may increase your risk of heart disease or other illnesses. If you are often sleepy during the day and wakeful at night, suffer from chronic snoring or creeping, tingling sensations in your legs or arms, talk with your doctor. All are common signs of a sleep disorder, a very treatable condition.
To reach the Sleep Clinic, call (260) 463-9050.
