At Advanced Body Scan, we provide heart scans using the cutting edge GE Optima CT, which can detect coronary artery disease in its early stages. Our traditional diagnostic imaging can diagnose large deposits of fatty plaque comprised of cholesterol and other cellular waste products, which is one of the main causes. Beyond that, our new GE Optima CT can also reveal tiny deposits as a result of its rapid scanner, which transcends motion blur and gives us an even clearer picture.
With the data we can collect from your heart scan, you will be able to set up the proper plans with your doctor to get you on the road to recovery. Diagnosing coronary heart disease early will lead to more effective treatment, and can give you a greater ability to prevent future cardiac events.
