Iowa Heart Center Offers Calcium Scoring Special in October

October 3, 2016

Knowing your risk for heart disease is the first step in prevention. To help people evaluate their risk, Iowa Heart Center is offering its calcium scoring heart scan screening for only $75 (regularly $99) until Oct. 31. This screening consists of a quick, painless CT scan of your coronary arteries called calcium scoring and an in-depth risk assessment with a nurse practitioner specializing in cardiology if requested (recent lipid panel must be available).

 In order to qualify for the exam, you must have two or more risk factors (family history, increasing age, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, smoking, obesity and physical inactivity) for heart disease.

 This score, along with other risk factors, provides a picture of future risk for heart disease while there’s still time to do something about it. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call (515) 633-3700.
