Put your heart in the right place: Bend Memorial Clinic.

Cardiology Diagnostic Services

Heart disease is the leading killer in the United States.

The good news?  Early detection and prevention can help change this statistic. Although some conditions — as well as some lifestyle factors — can put people at a higher risk, you can make healthy choices to help prevent heart disease.

  • Eat a healthy diet
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Exercise regularly
  • Don’t smoke

We administer Coronary Calcium Scoring (CCS) and Carotid Intima-Media Thickness (CIMT) screenings that provide the most accurate, noninvasive look at your potential heart attack risk. These detailed screenings last about 15 minutes.

Why SCREEN?

Plaque is a build-up of cholesterol and calcium that can narrow the arteries or close off blood flow to the heart. For half of Americans, the first symptom of heart disease is a heart attack. Early identification of heart disease and  treatment can prevent a heart attack.

Who?

Consider either screening if you are a man over 45, or a woman over 55 with at least one of the following risk factors:

  • Family history of heart disease
  • High cholesterol level
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Smoking
  • Obesity
  • Sedentary or high stress lifestyle

CORONARY CALCIUM SCORING
Coronary calcium scoring is a painless, noninvasive scan that evaluates whether you may have heart disease by detecting coronary artery calcifications on a low-radiation CT scan.

CAROTID IMT $149*
This ultrasound study of the neck detects carotid artery plaque while quantifying risk based on presence and severity of plaque. No radiation is involved.
