Logan Regional Medical Center Introduces CT Coronary Calcium Scoring Screening for Cardiovascular Health
February 5, 2024
Logan Regional Medical Center is pleased to announce the addition of CT Coronary Calcium Scoring screening to its comprehensive suite of cardiovascular health services. This advanced screening is designed to assess the risk of coronary artery disease, providing valuable insights into an individual's heart health.
CT Coronary Calcium Scoring is a non-invasive imaging technique that measures the amount of calcium in the coronary arteries. The presence of calcium in these arteries is often associated with atherosclerosis, a condition that can lead to heart disease. By undergoing this screening, individuals can proactively manage their cardiovascular health and work towards preventing heart-related issues.
To make this screening accessible to the community, Logan Regional Medical Center is offering the CT Coronary Calcium Scoring screening at the affordable cost of $75. This inclusive fee covers the screening procedure and interpretation of the results. Additionally, individuals interested in scheduling a screening can call 304.831.1928 to book their appointment.
It's important to note that a provider's order is required to schedule the CT Coronary Calcium Scoring screening. Individuals are encouraged to consult with their healthcare provider to determine if this screening is appropriate for them based on their medical history and risk factors.
"We are excited to bring CT Coronary Calcium Scoring to our community as part of our commitment to promoting heart health and preventing cardiovascular diseases," said David Brash, CEO at Logan Regional Medical Center. "This screening provides valuable information that can empower individuals to take proactive steps towards a heart-healthy lifestyle."
Logan Regional Medical Center remains dedicated to delivering high-quality healthcare services and promoting preventive care within the community. The introduction of CT Coronary Calcium Scoring is another step towards enhancing the overall cardiovascular health of our community members.
