The Report Card

Your carotid artery scan is compared to our proprietary database of over 40,000 patients of which over 1,000,000 data points have been mapped and categorized by age, gender and ethnic background. Plaque formation, the development of lesions and arterial blockage will be accurately identified in its earliest stages of disease development. A cardiovascular health assessment report card is generated that reflects your state of heart health and grades your risk from low to high. All other scores are relative to your medical history and require a consultation with your physician.
