Life Saving Techniques and Technology
Every day people suffer heart attacks caused by blocked arteries because they ignore or attribute symptoms to normal stress and fatigue.
Find out if you’re at risk by taking a 30-minute, noninvasive test now offered at The Heart & Vascular Center at Hutchinson Regional Medical Center. We’re one of the first facilities in the United States to offer the SOMATOM® Definition dual source CT scanner to accurately diagnose cardiovascular disease in minutes.
At twice the speed of most advanced CT systems, the Definition gives our physicians a clear picture of your beating heart. It can identify blockages and plaque buildup, early indicators of heart disease.
Ask your doctor for more information about this test, or call 620.665.2126. Many private insurance programs cover the test. For patients without insurance it’s only $500 with a doctor’s referral.
Risk factors for cardiovascular disease include:
- Family History Of Heart Disease Or Stroke
- Being 20 Pounds Or More Overweight
- High Blood Pressure
- High Cholesterol
- Males Over 45
- Females Over 55
