Why Schedule a C-IMT Scan
According to the CDC, heart disease is the No. 1 killer of Americans. More than 655,000 Americans die of heart disease every year. By comparison, the annual death rate for the COVID-19 epidemic is about 450,000 Americans per year.
Carotid C-IMT ultrasound scans are 95% predictive of the health of your entire cardiovascular system.
CorSanitas uses C-IMT scans to identify heart disease — the No. 1 killer of Americans. Heart disease is reversible without surgery or other invasive procedures in 90-95% of cases, especially when detected early.
C-IMT ultrasound scans go beyond traditional risk factors for cardiovascular disease (LDL cholesterol, total cholesterol, blood pressure, smoking, obesity, and type 2 diabetes) to uncover the presence of vascular disease, arterial plaque, and the amount of plaque lining the carotid arteries (measured to 1/1000 of a millimeter).
Heart disease (atherosclerosis) is optional — and 95% reversible
With the right information, medications, and common-sense lifestyle changes, virtually anyone can reverse the formation of plaque in their arteries.
