Heart Disease & Lung Cancer in the United States
According to the CDC, about 695,000 people in the United States died from heart disease in 2021.
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States — it’s responsible for one in every five deaths.
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths, with one in every five cancer deaths caused by this disease.
Advanced medical technology enables people to find out their level of risk for coronary artery disease and detect early-stage lung cancer. Both of these potentially fatal diseases are treatable when found early on.
What Our Heart Calcium Score CT Scan Diagnoses
Our calcium score test tells you if you’re at an increased risk for a heart attack, empowering you to make better-informed health and lifestyle choices and helping your doctor ensure you get the appropriate treatment for your needs.
We use a CT scan to measure the amount of calcified plaque accumulated on the walls of your coronary arteries. The procedure is painless and uses only a very low dose of radiation.
This health screening can play a vital role in your longevity because it provides an accurate assessment of your risk level even if you don’t have any symptoms of heart disease.
It also can take a huge weight off your shoulders if you’re worried about heart disease. If your calcium heart score is low, you might be at a very low-risk level, even if you fall into traditional high-risk categories.
Who is a Good Candidate for a Calcium Score CT Scan?
This type of coronary artery health assessment can be helpful for anyone in their 40s and older. It’s particularly beneficial for adults who are known to be at a higher risk for coronary artery disease because of any of the following risk factors:
- A family history of heart disease
- Being overweight or obese
- Living an inactive lifestyle
- A history of smoking
- A history of diabetes, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure
How Low-Dose Lung Scan Can Help
When lung cancer is treated before it spreads, the five-year survival rate goes up by 60 percent. But some people don’t notice the signs of lung cancer when it’s in its early stages, and routine preventative testing isn’t always enough to identify a problem.
A minimally invasive low-dose lung scan can detect lung cancer in its very early stages when it’s still likely to be curable, giving you the chance to treat the disease before it spreads.
Who is a Good Candidate for a Low-Dose Lung Scan?
This comprehensive test can be useful for older adults who have a history of tobacco use or who are at a higher risk for lung cancer because of other risk factors such as:
- Exposure to secondhand smoke
- Exposure to workplace pollutants, such as diesel exhaust
- Exposure to radon or asbestos
- A family history of lung cancer
We offer our low-dose CT lung cancer scan at the same time as our heart calcium score test, giving you insight into your heart and lung health.
