St. Luke's Heart Scan
Your heart disease can go undetected for years. St. Luke's developed
Heart Scan to speed up the process of finding heart disease. We use this
screening to identify plaque in your coronary arteries and assess your
heart's health. There are no injections, treadmills or pre-test fasting.
The cost is $99.
How does a Heart Scan work?
A computed tomography (CT) machine takes X-ray pictures of your heart
and detects plaque in the arteries, creating a number called a calcium
score. This number determines your heart disease risk. The results help
your doctor assess your risk of heart disease and which steps you can
take to avoid serious heart complications.
Who can get a Heart Scan?
The Heart Scan is for men and women between the ages of 40 and 70. All that's needed is a doctor's referral.
