Hospital Reduces Cost of Heart Scans This Month

SARATOGA SPRINGS – As part of its observance of American Heart Month in February, Saratoga Hospital will offer heart scans at the reduced price of $99. The simple, painless test—also known as a cardiac-calcium scoring exam—can detect heart disease even before symptoms begin.

The test may make sense for individuals who have risk factors such as diabetes; a family history of heart disease; high blood pressure or high cholesterol; overweight by 20 percent or more; a sedentary lifestyle; tobacco use; men over 45; and women over 40 and 55, who have gone through menopause or had their ovaries removed without taking estrogen.

As with any test, individuals first should discuss their situation with a doctor. A physician referral is required. The exam often is not covered by insurance. For more information or to make an appointment, call 518-580-2232.
