Willis-Knighton offers special pricing in February for Coronary Calcium Scan

Willis-Knighton Offers Special Pricing in February for Coronary Calcium Scan

Coronary artery disease is a common heart condition. A buildup of calcium in the heart arteries is often the cause. A coronary calcium scan is the most accurate screening tool for detecting calcium deposits in the coronary arteries and determining your level of risk for heart attack.

During February, which is Heart Month, Willis-Knighton Health System offers special pricing for the scan. The 10-minute noninvasive procedure tells your doctor if you’re at increased risk. The scan combines a CT scan with an EKG to identify whether calcium deposits are present in the arteries of your heart.

Willis-Knighton’s charge for the procedure during February is $25, and the radiologist reading fee is $25, for a total of $50. Coronary calcium scans will be offered at Willis-Knighton Heart & Vascular Institute (North), WK Pierremont Health Center, WK Portico Center and WK Bossier Medical Pavilion. Appointments are available Monday through Saturday.

Because this is a medical service, a referral from a physician is required. To take advantage of this special pricing, contact your primary care doctor or cardiologist. If you need a cardiologist, you may contact Pierremont Cardiology at (318) 212-3858 or Willis-Knighton Cardiology at (318) 631-6400.
