We spoke to Cheryl Drexler about CT Scoring and why it’s important?”:
Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. Lima Memorial now offers a simple 10-minute test that can detect heart problems in those at risk for cardiovascular disease. CT cardiac calcium scoring is an imaging procedure used to detect the smallest amount of calcium, or plaque, in your coronary arteries using a multi-slice CT scanner. The more calcium you have, the higher the risk you may have for a heart attack or stroke. Find out your risk of heart disease today by scheduling an appointment with Lima Memorial Radiology by calling 419-226-5030 or visit www.limamemorial.org to learn more about Lima Memorial Heart and Vascular Institute.
