Gift certificates for the following scans are available: * Coronary Artery Scan
("heart scan"): examination of the heart with coronary calcium score Includes all interpretations and comprehensive report as well as chest image examination by a radiologist -- $399 (or 2 for $699) * Lung Scan: high resolution, low radiation dose scan of the lungs and chest performed by a board certified radiologist -- $300 * Full Body Scan: coronary heart scan, EBT lung scan and EBT abdomen/pelvis scan -- $700.
Patients who have had a coronary artery scan
can have it done anywhere from Memphis to Munich, and still have confidence that that number means the same thing.
In studies reflecting results in tens of thousands of patient examinations, the predictive accuracy and high sensitivity of the EBT coronary artery scan
for the detection of sub-clinical coronary artery disease has been confirmed in both asymptomatic subjects and in those with a higher likelihood of heart disease.
This important research finding clearly demonstrates significantly better test specificity (the ability to produce a normal result in those persons without cardiac disease) for the EBT coronary artery scan
for calcification than had previously been thought.
The high-speed, low radiation EBCT body scan includes the coronary artery scan
(heart scan), the lung scan, an abdominal-pelvic scan and a quantitative CT bone density scan.
Each of the last two years, we've had an officer who had a coronary artery scan
that revealed significant coronary artery blockage.
Lewis Meyer, CEO of Imatron, stated, "The inclusion of Imatron's EBCT by the National Institutes of Health in this pioneering study represents further recognition of the diagnostic and predictive power of the Coronary Artery Scan
to quantify coronary calcification, which has been described in peer-reviewed literature as the single most powerful predictor of coronary events in the asymptomatic population.
The EBT coronary artery scan
was shown to add unique and valuable prognostic information in these specific patients.
Ehrlich also notes that more than 600 area physicians have undergone the EBT coronary artery scan
Thus, the predictive power of the EBT coronary artery scan
was measured independent of any possible confounding behavioral influence on subsequent treatment.
