Calcium score screenings at Singing River Health System
Tomorrow will start the month of love and valentines, but it is also a time to think about your health because it is ‘Heart Month.’
With that in mind, Singing River Health Systems will be discounting the prices of their calcium screenings to help keep the Coast heart healthy throughout February.
The test measures your calcium score which detects the amount of calcium in the coronary artery which help doctors calculate your risks for a heart attack or stroke.
Doctors advise these screenings if you have a medium risk for heart disease. Dr. Roland Mestayer said, “The coronary arteries are the arteries that supply blood and oxygen to the heart muscle and it’s the plaques that are kind of like a clog in the pipe and that’s what we are detecting with these smart score CT scans.”
This special heart healthy offer will last through the month of February.
