Cardiac Scoring

Coronary Artery Disease is the most common form of heart disease and the number one killer of both men and women. Using the latest CT technology, Cardiac Scoring is a convenient test for detecting people at risk for developing heart disease. Cardiac Scoring is a non-invasive, painless scan of the heart that takes less than ten minutes.

Minutes after the test, patients receive their score, a number showing the potential for suffering the effects of coronary heart disease. A qualified technologist reviews the score with the patient and recommends a follow-up appointment with a physician if the score is high.

Although Cardiac Scoring is a helpful test for detecting risk factors, it is not a replacement for seeing a physician or cardiologist. The test does not replace other diagnostic tests such as an ECG, Stress Test, or Cardiac Catheterization.


To schedule a cardiac scoring exam, call (270) 745-1199 or toll free 1-800-231-9621.
