When Terry and Rob had their heart problems, this topic came up.
It was a doctor that referred me to this Groupon super discount.
My appointment date was over two months away, so don't be in a hurry.
The technology is called Electron Beam Computed Tomography (EBCT), a highly advanced CT technology that has no moving parts. Using an electron beam rather than the standard CT x-ray tube, imaging is done at speeds up to 10 times faster and with 1/10 the radiation of other CT scanners.

Do it! Even if you think you are a picture of health. I went to Virtual Imaging almost 2 years ago. Some areas of concern showed up and subsequent testing from my cardiologist revealed a 60% blockage! I was stunned, I expected 30% at most. But knowing that was enough to clean up the diet and start taking better care of myself (exercise not a problem, just need to eat better). It's still a struggle sometimes, so I figure if I'm doing 80/20 I'll be ok.
