Cardiovascular disease can be a silent killer
Studies show that more than 50% of heart attacks and strokes occur in people with normal cholesterol levels, presumed to be “healthy.”
Routine tests by primary care doctors do not uncover serious heart disease and stroke risk until it is too late. Early detection of risk and any hidden problems is the best way to prevent heart disease.
Our doctors are experienced in ordering and interpreting advanced test for early detection of heart disease and stroke.
Blood Tests for Early Detection of Heart Disease and Stroke
We use Advanced Heart Panels – performed by
These advanced tests provide insight into:
- Genetic risk of cardiovascular disease
- Plaque-causing cholesterol fractions
- Inflammation markers of cardiovascular disease
- Pumping power of heart muscle
- Pre-diabetes and diabetes level
Carotid Intima Media Thickness (CIMT) Scanning
This procedure is simple, painless and completed within just 10 minutes. It’s performed with an ultrasound of your carotid artery walls, which provides valuable information in assessing your risk of stroke and heart disease.
Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing (CPET)
This test provides assessment of the integrative exercise responses involving the pulmonary, cardiovascular and skeletal muscle systems and evaluates exercise capacity. We refer you to our network cardiologists for exercise stress test.
Heart Scan (EBCT Imaging)
We refer you for heart scan to determine calcium score in your heart. Calcium score in your heart helps for early detection and quantification of severity of coronary artery disease.
Corus CAD is a blood test that safely assess whether or not patients’ chest discomfort or other symptoms may be due to obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD).
Home Sleep Study
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) increases the risk of cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and stroke. We provide the choice of home or in lab sleep study.
