Wellness Screenings

Wellness screening exams are a proactive approach to detecting a potential health problem or disease in someone who is not actively showing signs or symptoms. MIR is committed to providing our patients with wellness screening exams to ensure optimal health.

A cardiac CT scan for coronary calcium is a non-invasive way of obtaining information about the presence, location and extent of calcified plaque in the coronary arteries—the vessels that supply oxygen-containing blood to the heart muscle. Calcified plaque signals the presence of atherosclerosis, a disease of the vessel wall, also called coronary artery disease (CAD). People with this disease have an increased risk of heart attacks.

Candidates include those who have had an incomplete colonoscopy, patients who are unable to tolerate a colonoscopy and those wishing to avoid sedation.
