  • We screen men and women.

  • Call 225-924-8391 to learn more or to schedule a screening.

Fact
Presence of calcium is a proven indicator of heart disease. The sooner heart disease is detected, the greater the chances it can be treated.

A non-invasive test can measure the presence of calcium deposits in coronary arteries. Coronary calcium scans use a special X-ray procedure called Computed Tomography (CT) to check for the buildup of calcium on the walls of the arteries of the heart.

This screening is safe and painless and takes 30 minutes to perform.
