The Heartsaver CT scan is a non-invasive, painless test that can detect heart disease in its early stages, when it is easiest to treat. To ensure you get the screenings and tests you need, it is important to discuss your personal and family medical history with your healthcare provider. The Center for Women's Heart & Vascular Health is addressing the gender disparities in cardiovascular medicine with several research projects currently underway. Even if you have not been diagnosed with any medical conditions, your health professional may still recommend more rigorous screening tests if you have risk factors or a family history of cardiovascular disease.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States, claiming more lives than all forms of cancer combined: one death every 39 seconds. To identify your risk factors, your health professional can perform or request screening tests during regular visits.
