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
- Have high cholesterol
- Are over 45 (males) and over 55 (females)
