Every year, more Americans die of symptoms directly related to heart disease than any other cause. Unfortunately, many experience no advance warning signs. Their first indication is sudden death.
Fortunately, there are new methods of diagnosing and treating heart disease, and the earlier it's detected, the greater the chances it can be slowed, stopped or even reversed. SwedishAmerican has several ways of finding out what shape your heart is in.
One of our diagnostic tests, Heart Scan, offers patients a non-invasive (no needles, no dyes, no injections) method of detecting heart disease that is fast, painless, and can identify problems before symptoms are present. You simply lie on a table and hold your breath while our heart scanner takes a rapid series of X-ray pictures of your heart. The entire procedure takes less than an hour. Within one week, you'll receive your results in the mail, and a heart professional will call you to talk about them.
