Women’s Heart Center Screenings
Are you at risk for heart or blood vessel problems? Screenings are the best way to find out. Start now to prevent future problems — or find out what kind of care you need — with the heart screening plan that’s right for you. Emory Women’s Heart Center experts know how heart disease may affect women differently than men.
Screening Plan A – Set a Baseline
This $75 first screening is the where most women start. We’ll talk about your family, smoking and pregnancy histories, examine you and look at your:
Body Mass Index (BMI) Check
Blood Pressure Check
Depression Scale Assessment
Fasting Blood Sugar Test
Screening Plan B – Medium Risk
Our $100 mid-level screening plan is for women who already have a higher-than-average risk of heart problems. These screenings are especially important for women who have high blood pressure or diabetes. This plan includes:
Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) – Screening for circulation abnormalities in the lower extremities.
Echocardiogram – Test to evaluate the structural aspects of the heart.
Electrocardiogram (EKG) – Test to evaluate the electrical conduction of the heart.
Hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) – Blood test to determine diabetes risk.
Microalbuminuria – Urine test to screen for early kidney disease.
Based on your screening results or other risk factors, your doctor may suggest that you have a stress test. During this test, you’ll walk on a treadmill while we monitor your heart.
