Over 350,000 Americans die from Sudden Cardiac Arrest each year.
Find out if you are at risk.
Coronary Calcium Scan is a CT Scan that detects and measures calcium containing plaque in arteries. It can identify Coronary Artery Disease years before signs and symptoms occur.
Carotid Ultrasound and Carotid Intima-Media Thickness Test is an exam of the Carotid Arteries in the neck. This allows us to detect the presence of atherosclerotic plaque in the carotid arteries which can cause a stroke. It also evaluates the thickness of the arterial wall which is an early predictor of heart attack and stroke.
An EKG measures the electrical activity and rhythm of the heart. Many heart conditions can be detected with this common test.
Framingham Risk Evaluation identifies at-risk groups at the population level. Using this tool along with the EKG, a Carotid Ultrasound and the Coronary Artery Calcium Scan allows Dr. Galvin to accurately determine an individual's actual risk for heart attack and stroke.
$799 package includes all of the above testing and a 30-minute analysis of results with Dr. Galvin.
A Note from Jeffrey Galvin, MD
Everyone should be able to answer three simple questions about their heart health:
1. Do I have heart disease (plaque or blockages)?
2. What is my personal risk of a heart attack and Sudden Cardiac Death in the future?
3. If I do have heart disease, what can I do to prevent a heart attack or stroke?
Out of 350,000 heart disease-related deaths, 40 percent were unaware they had heart disease. Their first symptom was a cardiac arrest.The majority of these cases occur in young patients between the ages of 30 and 50. We can easily identify those at risk and prevent Sudden Cardiac Deaths from occurring with a few simple tests.
