HeartSmart CT Scan

Every year, millions of Americans suffer a sudden heart attack, and nearly one-third of them die.

HeartSmart CT Scan is a simple, 15-minute, non-invasive scan that can detect coronary artery disease in its early stages. No injections, special preparations, or pain are involved in this test.

How HeartSmart CT Scan works

HeartSmart CT Scan takes a stop-motion picture of the heart and coronary arteries, showing the calcified or hardened plaque — an early warning sign of heart disease. The scan reveals a cross-sectional image of the heart, which the cardiologist and radiologist can then view from many perspectives.

Who needs a heart screening?

If you have had a diagnosis of heart disease, you do not need a HeartSmart CT Scan. However, if you are a male age 40+ or a female age 45+ and have several of the following risk factors with no diagnosis, you should consider scheduling a HeartSmart CT Scan:

  • Family history of heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Vascular disease
  • Excess weight
  • Tobacco use
  • Diabetes
  • Stressful lifestyle
  • Inactive lifestyle

Scheduling a HeartSmart CT Scan

Speak with your physician about obtaining a HeartSmart CT Scan as part of your annual check-up and wellness efforts. Your doctor can write an order for the scan, help you schedule it, and provide follow-up as necessary. A HeartSmart CT Scan is also available without a physician’s referral. Be certain to check with your insurance company for possible reimbursement. Without a referral, the cost of a HeartSmart CT Scan is only $50.
