The Benefits of HeartFlow®

Bob Day, Chief Operating Officer at Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology, introduces HeartFlow and explains the many benefits of this personalized cardiac test.

Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States according to the American Heart Association. CAD develops when the arteries leading to the heart, narrow or become blocked, which may lead to a reduction in blood flow to the heart, causing chest pain, heart attacks and death. Despite being the most common form of heart disease, many of the non-invasive tests available today have low accuracy rates in detecting the disease.

The HeartFlow Analysis is a personalized cardiac test that your physician may order following a Coronary CT scan if additional information is needed. The test is NON-INVASIVE and does not require an additional visit. The HeartFlow Analysis assesses each blockage and how it impacts blood flow to the heartThe HeartFlow Analysis effectively helps direct patients to the most appropriate care and can eliminate 83% of unnecessary invasive angiograms1.

The exam is currently offered in ElmhurstLynbrookPlainviewStony Brook and West Islip. Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology is only one of two facilities on Long Island providing this service and the ONLY non-hospital facility.
