Making heart health a priority

Heart health is about more than just your heart. Blood pressure, cholesterol, family history, and other factors all play important roles in keeping your heart strong. If you have questions about your heart health but aren’t quite sure where to begin, start with a heart health assessment and learn more about any risks you may have for heart-related conditions. Your journey to a stronger heart starts here.

Cardiac Calcium Scoring

Get to know your heart with a low-cost, quick, and painless scan that could help identify heart problems before they happen.

Is your heart at risk? 

Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States and Cardiac Calcium Scoring is a safe, painless way for doctors to detect potential heart problems in advance. The results allow your doctor to calculate your risk of heart attack and detect early blockage and plaque build-up. This gives you the opportunity to make lifestyle changes that can help prevent or minimize the advancement of heart disease.


A referral from a provider is required. Call your primary care doctor at 906.483.1000 or visit Find A Doctor to schedule a Cardiac Calcium Scoring test today.
