Blog: Cardiac Calcium Scoring and Heart Disease
As part of our observance of American Heart Month, Saratoga Hospital will offer cardiac calcium scoring at the reduced price of $99 for the month of February. This simple, painless test can detect heart disease early, even before symptoms begin.
The test may make sense for individuals who have any of the following risk factors:
- Family history of heart disease
- High blood pressure or high cholesterol
- Overweight by 20% or more
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Tobacco use
- Men over age 45
- Women over age 55, or women over 50 who have gone through menopause, or have had their ovaries removed and are not taking estrogen
This test is offered at Wilton Medical Arts. Please talk to your primary care provider to determine if this test is right for you. A physician referral is required. The exam often is not covered by insurance.
For more information, or to make an appointment, please call 518-580-2232.
