Are you a Vulnerable Patient?
Each year close to 1.4 million people in the United States experience a heart attack, and in excess of 500,000 die from it. Amazingly, 50 to 70% of those individuals who died from a heart attack were not aware of their risk. If you are at risk of a near term future heart attack, we refer to you as a vulnerable patient.
But you can change that!
Take charge and be proactive with your heart health!
The Cypress Diagnostic Early Detection program measures plaque buildup that can lead to heart attack and stroke.
Cypress is the first SHAPE Center of Excellence in San Diego dedicated to the Early Detection of atherosclerosis, the leading cause of coronary artery disease. SHAPE is comprised of the world’s leading preventive cardiologists.
With Early Detection, Cypress Diagnostic Imaging is providing you the opportunity to work closely with your physician to halt and even reverse the disease.
