Heart CT for Calcium Scoring
Calcium scoring, also called a heart CT scan, is a painless, non-invasive way of obtaining information about your coronary arteries. This screening provides pictures of your heart's arteries and identifies if calcium deposits are present – which helps determine if you have a higher risk of having a heart attack or other potential symptoms of heart disease.
Who Should Have a Heart CT?
A heart CT for calcium scoring should be considered if you:
- Are at least 35 years old
- Are not currently being treated for heart disease
- Do not have a pacemaker
- Have at least two of these risk factors:
- High cholesterol levels
- High blood pressure
- Family history of heart disease
- History of cigarette smoking
- Physical inactivity
Chest Pain Center
National standards for treatment of an acute heart attack is 90 minutes from the time a patient presents to the ED to the time that the patient gets flow re-established to the heart in the Cardiac Cath lab. HRMC routinely has treatment times from 40-60 minutes which means faster care for the cardiac patient and better outcomes for these patients. This superior care has helped HRMC become an accredited Chest Pain Center with PCI designation as well as being a Designated Cardiac Receiving Center by the Arizona Department of Health Services.
Survive, Don’t Drive. CALL 9-1-1
Calling 9-1-1 for an ambulance is important so EMS can begin treating you before you get to the hospital. EMS will also send important information to our Chest Pain Center so our team is better prepared to care for you when you arrive.
85% of heart damage occurs within the first 2 hours after a heart attack. About 50% of sudden cardiac deaths occur outside a hospital.
From inpatient to specialized services, the Havasu Heart Center at HRMC offers a full complement of cardiac services including diagnostic, catheterization and surgical services. We also offer rehabilitative care for those patients who have experienced a cardiac event.
