Coronary calcium scoring
A CT scan for a coronary calcium score is a convenient and noninvasive way of evaluating your risk for a heart attack. This scan shows the location and extent of calcified plaque in the walls of coronary arteries.
The coronary calcium scoring scan takes five to 10 minutes and is noninvasive, so there's no pain and no injections. The results of this can help your physician detect coronary artery disease, which is a leading cause of heart attacks in men and women.
This test isn't covered by most health insurance or health plans. The test fee is $50, payable by check, credit card or cash at the time of service.
Talk with your doctor to find out if coronary calcium scoring is right for you. For more information, call (816) 282-5060.

Peripheral Vascular (PV) Clinic

The PV Clinic at Lee's Summit Medical Center was developed with these patients in mind and offers early screening and detection that can prevent vascular disease from worsening.

The accredited cardiac rehabilitation program at Lee's Summit Medical Center is a medically supervised exercise program designed to improve cardiovascular health for people who have or are at high risk for heart disease. Patients enrolled in this program are given tailored support and guidance in achieving cardiovascular fitness through exercise and nutrition.
In addition to setting individual exercise plans, the cardiac rehabilitation program staff provides counseling and continuing education to help patients control or eliminate cardiac risk factors and make a lifetime commitment to a heart-healthy lifestyle outside of the hospital.

We've created a program called Care Connect that makes healthcare easier to navigate. It connects you to the right care at the right time and keeps you and your loved ones healthy.
Care Assure, one of Care Connect's programs, allows us to screen the results of tests performed during an emergency or doctor's visit to identify any warning signs and prevent emergencies such as a heart attack or a stroke. If the results show you’re at risk for a possible cardiac episode, a trained nurse will contact you to connect you to the care you need to help prevent a future emergency.
