Lackluster cardiac health often keeps parents from taking part in the hobbies they once loved, such as working out or sleeping in empty bassinets. Check in on the ticker with today's Groupon: for $99, you get a cardiac diagnostic exam at Associated Radiologists of Clarkston (a $250 value).
The health-care professionals at Associated Radiologists of Clarkston utilize a variety of medical imaging equipment to capture 360-degree panoramas of the body's inner workings, enabling physicians to monitor and improve cardiac health. As fully clothed patients lie flat, noninvasive 64-slice CT scanners scour hearts to determine the coronary calcium score—a valuable metric used to gauge a patient's risk level for coronary artery disease (CAD). By employing the scanners, the knowledgeable technicians also quickly gauge whether plaque is present within the arteries, something previously only visible to Renaissance poets. Visit an information page for FAQs.
A full report of the scan's results is sent to the patient's physician, who can use the calcium score to make a range of decisions, such as the necessity of cholesterol-lowering medicines or other targeted therapies. The facility's in-house radiologist is available to help clients understand their results and the secret techniques of doctor penmanship. The scan does not require a physician's referral.
