Coronary Artery Calcium Scoring

Do you know your risk of cardiovascular disease?

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in Australia with around 57,000 Australians suffering a heart attack each year.

 

In recognition of RED FEB 21, we would like to help raise awareness around this disease and how important it is for individuals to understand their risk factors and live a healthy lifestyle.

 

One way to measure your risk is through a coronary artery calcium scoring test. This is a simple test which helps to save lives by measuring the level of calcium in the artery walls, estimating the risk of heart attack or stroke in the next five years.

 

We encourage you to speak to your GP about your risk factors and if this test is suitable for you.

 

This test is being offered at a reduced fee to all patients who book before the end of March.

 

Further detailed information about this test can be found here.
