Early stages of heart disease are often silent. But they’re when treatment works best. Schedule a fast, painless scan to see if your arteries put you at higher risk of a heart attack or other cardiac problems. Your doctor will use the results to help you stay in good health—and maybe even save your life.

Do I need a heart scan?

Take advantage of our simple, $49 screening if you’re:

  • 30–45 years old with two or more heart disease risk factors
  • Older than 45 with at least one heart disease risk factor
Risk factors

Heart disease risk factors include:

  • Diabetes
  • Family history of heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Inactive lifestyle
  • Obesity
  • Smoking

What to expect

You don’t need to do anything special to prepare for the test. Just come to a Benefit Health Outpatient Imaging location at your appointment time. We’ll help you get comfortably in place on a computed tomography (CT) table, and then the scanner will take pictures for 10–20 seconds. You’ll get back to your day within 15 minutes.

Your results

Expect a score from zero to 400+ indicating how much calcium buildup has hardened or narrowed your arteries. Low scores mean a low risk of heart disease—and peace of mind for you. High scores mean it’s time to talk to your doctor about how to reduce your chance of a heart attack.

I exercise daily, so I assumed my heart was fine. But my screening results told my doctor I needed to start medicine right away. She said I may have helped prevent a heart attack.

The test was so easy. Even though my results showed I’m at low risk, I feel better knowing I got checked out. I want to do everything I can to stay around for my kids as long as possible.
