Is there a heart attack in your future?
If there is, you need to know NOW so you can prevent it.
According to the Society of Nuclear Medicine, as many as half of all deaths due to coronary artery disease occur in individuals with no prior history or symptoms of heart disease. That means that each year, about 200,000 Americans learn they have heart disease only at the moment of their death!
If you think that the cholesterol test you have during your physical is giving you advanced warning of heart disease, think again. An astonishing 50% of people who are hospitalized with cardiovascular disease have “normal” cholesterol levels1. And 75% of patients who have had a heart attack fell within the current guideline-recommended targets for LDL cholesterol1.
There is a better way to know your TRUE heart disease risk.
You can achieve early detection—or simply piece of mind—with the Coronary Calcium Score. Also known as the “heart scan,” this incredibly insightful test is the only non-invasive screening that provides direct visual evidence of the disease itself.
The Coronary Calcium Score is recommended for men over 40 and women over 45 years of age. Even if you have no family history of heart disease, studies have shown you can benefit from this test2.
For a limited time, the Coronary Calcium Score is only $99.
Only at Radiology Associates of Hartford!

Then, one of our expert doctors will professionally review the images and calculate your calcium score. The higher the score, the higher the risk of heart disease and heart attack. Most people who have the scan simply achieve peace of mind. But for some—the heart scan has helped them detect advanced heart disease, even if they were in excellent physical shape and had no outward symptoms of heart disease.
