Get a heart screening with us

We offer a coronary artery calcium screening for $49 and a set of four heart and vascular screenings for free. You’ll need to talk to your primary care provider about which option will provide the best information on your heart.

Coronary artery calcium screening

The purpose of this screening is to define the presence of calcium in coronary arteries (coronary atherosclerosis) and provide a strong predictor of whether you are likely to have a cardiac event.

The patient benefits include:
  • Identifies risk for cardiac disease within next 10 years
  • Identify treatment options before symptoms begin
  • Identify signs of coronary artery disease
  • Quantify amount of plaque buildup

Treatment options


Depending on risk, treatment could include therapeutic lifestyle changes, cholesterol medication (statin therapy) or additional cardiovascular testing. Your provider will discuss these options with you.
 
If you are interested in having a calcium screening, talk to your primary care provider about your risk factors.

 A set of four screenings to evaluate your heart and circulation — and they are FREE

  1. Echocardiogram – An ultrasound of the heart, the echocardiogram demonstrates how your heart is working by evaluating various structures of the heart and how they are working normally and detect potential abnormalities.
  2. Abdominal aortic ultrasound – Evaluates size, shape, and blood flow through the aorta that supplies blood to your lower extremities.
  3. Ankle-brachial index (ABI) – Evaluates blood flow in your limbs to measure your risk of peripheral artery disease (PAD).
  4. Carotid artery ultrasound – Evaluates the blood flow from your heart to your brain.
To be eligible for this set of four screenings, you must meet the criteria of having one or two risk factors for heart disease. Your primary care provider can tell you more.

Preventive screenings in one package

Our screenings involve more than your blood pressure and heart rate. These heart and vascular screenings evaluate how well the heart functions, including its rhythm, blood flow and circulation throughout the body. These simple, painless tests help detect problems early – before symptoms appear. And with early diagnosis, we have more options for treatment to keep heart and blood vessels healthy.
 
If your results show you are at risk for heart or vascular disease, our highly trained team can work with your primary care provider to develop a treatment plan to lower your risk of heart attack, stroke, abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) and peripheral arterial disease (PAD) to the legs and feet.

Treatment options

Depending on risk, treatment could include therapeutic lifestyle changes, cholesterol medication (statin therapy) or additional cardiovascular testing. Your provider will discuss these options with you.

Do I need a heart screening?

Often, your primary care provider may recommend a screening because of your age, health history or if you’ve previously had a cardiac procedure. Some people experience symptoms, such as claudication, that needs a heart screening to confirm the condition or rule it out.

If you have any of the following risk factors for a heart or vascular problem, talk to your doctor about getting a heart screening:

Detecting problems early can lead to prompt treatment that can help save vital functions of your heart and vascular system. Talk to your doctor about which screening is right for you.
