Cardiac Risk Screening
Cardiovascular disease is associated with the build-up of deposits within the arteries, thus blocking or reducing the flow of oxygen rich blood to the heart.
It can lead to various conditions including stroke, angina, heart attacks or heart failure as well as affecting other parts of the body. Early detection is vital in the management of this disease.
This scan is 97% accurate and utilises the Aquilion 1 CT scanner which is one of the most advanced scanners in the world.
This evidence based screen highlights early cardiovascular disease through identifying raised calcium levels and early hardening of the arteries.
Treatment and preventative actions can be taken to avoid this serious and potentially life threatening disease progressing
