Heart disease is not a one-way street. Your own actions can "turn the bus around" if you haven't gone too far. With changes in your lifestyle -- the foods you eat, the exercise you get, how you handle the stress in your life -- you can stop the progress of heart disease. You can even reduce the plaque that has already accumulated in your arteries. The key is to catch your heart disease early and to make healthy changes now.
Providence Cardiology can help you do both those things.
Our HeartSenseTM Calcium-Scoring CT Scan is a non-invasive, painless scan of your vessels that shows signs of heart disease at its earliest stages, long before you have any symptoms or a heart attack. Ask your physician for a referral to try it if you or your physician has concerns about your family history or lifestyle.
