Compassionate Care and Cutting Edge Technology

The Advanced Heart Check

Quick and easy, the Advanced Heart Check allows you to schedule a normal day of activity around the procedure. It begins with a 64-slice CT scan providing enhanced 3-D views of the inner workings of your heart, and following your test, you’ll receive a CD to view the images of your heart and a medical summary, also.

It's never been easier to evaluate your heart health with exceptional image quality, equipping our expert cardiologists and radiologists to rule out normal aches and pains and diagnose areas of concern.

If you or someone you love have known risk factors for heart disease such as family history, obesity, stressed lifestyle, history of smoking or diabetes, the Advanced Heart Check is for you.
