The mission of Legacy Heart Center is to exceed the expectations of our patients and our referring physicians. We endeavor to provide the best possible cardiovascular care for our patients in a caring and responsive environment. We believe this mission is best accomplished through continuing education, planned practice responses to the changing needs of our community, and cost effective standards of care which do not compromise quality.
The physicians at Legacy Heart Center are specialists in cardiovascular care. Because we are specialized, this means that our physicians will be able to treat only your cardiac and vascular problems. If you do not have a primary care physician, we will be happy to give you a list of names to choose from that will be convenient for you and your family. For more information on the physicians, please visit our website.
At Legacy Heart Center, your CT scan will be performed on a new type of scanner called the General Electric LightSpeed® CT that can capture exceptionally high-resolution images of vascular structures, the heart and even the heart arteries in just a few seconds.
The system provides images that will allow your cardiologist to complete a thorough, non-invasive cardiac exam that will show any blockages in the heart arteries, the pumping action of the heart, the blood flow in the heart muscle and provide a coronary calcium score that can be used to assess a heart disease risk.
