Heart Smart CT Scan

There are numerous conditions that can affect your heart health, many of which exhibit few or no symptoms. Many of these conditions go undiagnosed until there is a serious problem. Don’t wait, early detection can save your life!  Paulding County Hospital Imaging Department is now offering Heart Smart CT scans to our community. Our Heart Smart scan is also known as a calcium scoring scan.
