HeartSmart - Carotid IMT Assessment

- The Intimal-Medial Thickness (IMT) measurement is an accurate way of viewing the effect of atherosclerosis or hardening of the arteries.

- The thicker the measurement, the more disease is present.

- Studies show that in about 70% of the time the disease processes similarly affect the carotid and coronary arteries.


Full Description

Carotid Intima Media Thickness test (CIMT)

HeartSmartIMTplus™ is a non-invasive, state-of-the-art, cost-effective diagnostic tool for the earliest detection of cardiovascular disease. Safe, painless and convenient, it takes only 10 – 15 minutes in our office. With advanced ultrasound technology, we measure the thickness of the intima media layers of the carotid arterial wall. Thickening of that layer, due to inflammation, is the earliest sign of cardiovascular disease. It shows long before plaque build-up. This test can also detect plaque and distinguish the type of soft friable plaque that most often results in an acute event.
