Date:9/23/2008

A $199 Screening Offered at Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center

CHICAGO, Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- The Imaging Department at Saints Mary and Elizabeth Medical Center, 2233 W. Division Street, is offering a Coronary Calcium CT Scan for the discounted fee of $199 during the months of October and November. A $500 value, this screening includes a Coronary Calcium CT Scan with a state-of-the-art 64-slice CT scanner, an electrocardiogram and measurement of blood pressure, glucose and cholesterol levels. The screening also includes a written report of results and follow-up, if needed, with a member of the hospital's Cardiology Department. The entire procedure takes about thirty minutes.

"A Coronary Calcium CT Scan is a non-invasive way of obtaining information about the location and extent of calcified plaque in the coronary arteries -- the vessels that supply oxygen-containing blood to the heart wall," says John Connolly, M.D., Radiology Department. "Many people with plaque deposits often do not have any symptoms. This simple test can provide an early warning of coronary artery disease before experiencing any cardiac symptoms." For more information or to register for an appointment, please call 877-RES-INFO (877-737-4636) or visit our website at http://www.smemc.reshealth.org/cardiac.

Heart Disease is the #1 cause of death and disability in the United States. In many cases, the first sign of heart disease may be a heart attack and possibly death.
