Cardiovascular Screening Program - Heart and Vitality

Cardiovascular Screening Program

  • A comprehensive blood screening will be done. This is a more detailed look at your blood chemistry than our hormone blood tests. We will look at your basic blood levels, cholesterol levels, Cardiac CRP – a test that is directly correlated with your risk of heart disease, Vitamin D, Thyroid Panel, Hemoglobin A1C – identifies if you are at risk for diabetes,  and much more!
  • You will undergo a series of screening exams which include:
    • Coronary Calcium Score – This quick  CT scan looks at the coronary arteries and identifies any calcified plaque. This test is vital in determining if you are at risk.
    • Limited Echocardiogram – A sonogram of your heart looks at the “structural” aspect of your heart.
    • Carotid Intima Media Thickness (CIMT) – This sonogram of your carotid arteries allows us to measure the thickness of your Carotid Arteries.
  • Consultation with Dr. Abraham Jacob. With the results in hand, Dr. Jacob will review the findings and discuss your options. A detailed plan will be provided to put you on a path for healthy living.
