Heart Screenings

Heart Screenings Save Lives

Heart disease can strike fast and prevent your heart from doing its vital job. Know your risk and protect your heart with a screening from Sanford Health. This affordable, painless test gives you and your doctor a better look at your risk for heart disease. We're here to help you plan for your future heart care.

Give yourself some peace of mind with a heart screening. It could save your life.


Your Heart Screen Includes:


  • Cardiac calcium score: A heart scan or X-ray.

     

  • EKG: Sensors on your skin can detect the electrical activity of your heart.

     

  • Body mass index (BMI): Your doctor will use your height and weight to determine your BMI.

     

  • Non-fasting cholesterol: High cholesterol typically has no symptoms, so it’s important to have your cholesterol levels checked with a quick finger poke.

     

  • Blood pressure: Many people don’t know they have high blood pressure until they’ve been tested for it. So sit for a little arm squeeze.

     

  • Framingham score: A risk estimate for developing heart disease in the next 10 years.

Benefits of a Heart Screen

Heart screens are accessible, affordable, and can make a long-term difference in your life. Early identification of severe conditions allows you and your doctor to make changes now and reduce or prevent problems later.

You can manage and reduce most causes of cardiovascular disease. During a heart screen, you and your doctor will discuss how to control your unique heart disease risk factors.

Let your doctor know if you have diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, smoking, high cholesterol or a family history of heart disease.
