title="What Is a HeartView Scan?" fontawesome="fa-user-md" class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6" color="red"

The 10-minute HeartView scan is a non-invasive scan of the heart that may save lives by detecting heart disease long before symptoms occur. This non-invasive screening exam is performed on our 64-slice CT scanner and enables doctors to see the tiniest plaque buildup in the coronary arteries (the arteries nearest to your heart).

People who are likely to benefit from the HeartView scan are those who:

  • Have a family history of stroke or heart disease
  • Have diabetes
  • Are 20 pounds or more overweight
  • Smoke
  • Have high cholesterol
  • Are over 45 (males) and over 55 (females)

What you know could save your life.
Man Up & Become Heart Smart
“Many men think their symptoms are a sign of something else, like heartburn, so they do nothing,” says Peter Ofman, MD, a Steward cardiologist. “Even a man who already had a prior heart attack may not recognize his symptoms, as each attack can be dramatically different.”
Heart Attack Information
Heart Attack Information: What you know could save your life!
There are often warning signs leading up to a heart attack that people often ignore. Approximately 50% of people have symptoms within the two weeks preceding a heart attack. Through early recognition of symptoms and controlling risk factors, heart attacks can be prevented. Recognize ALL the signs!
