Heart Scan FAQ
Q: What is a heart scan?
A: A heart scan, also called a heart CT scan or calcium scoring, is a simple, noninvasive method that tells your doctor if you're at increased risk for the most common form of heart disease – coronary artery disease (CAD). This scan identifies whether calcium deposits are present in the arteries of your heart. The more calcium deposits you have, the more plaque. And that can lead to a heart attack.
Q: I don't have a primary care doctor. Can I still book an appointment?
A: Yes. You can schedule a heart scan if you don't have a primary care doctor. When we call you with the results, we'll be happy to help you find a primary care doctor or cardiologist. You can also search for a specialist online.
Q: Do I need an order from my doctor?
A: You don't need a doctor's order, but some people may need to be evaluated by their primary care doctor prior to getting a heart scan. We also recommend you follow up with your primary care doctor and advise them you had a heart scan and discuss the results.
Q: How long does it take to get results?
A: Results come back within 48 hours.
Q: Is this scan covered by insurance?
A: This scan, priced at $49, is self-pay only. Your insurance company won't be billed.
Q: How long will heart scans be available at this price?
A: The $49 price is available throughout the year.
Q: How do I make a payment?
A: You can pay over the phone when you schedule the appointment.
Q: Are there any other fees or prescreenings?
A: The scan is $49 – no other fees.
Q: Does this involve radiation exposure?
A: Heart scans use a type of X-ray, so there is exposure to radiation.
Q: Can this be done even after having a bypass or a heart stent?
A: If you've already been diagnosed with heart disease, a heart scan isn't for you. Talk to your doctor if you have any questions instead.
Q: Can you have this done with a pacemaker?
A: We recommend against a heart scan if you have a pacemaker. Talk to your doctor about it.
Q: Does it check carotid arteries too?
A: No, it does not.
