The office is equipped with the area’s only 128 slice CT scanner which allows for imaging of your entire heart in 1-2 heartbeats. Dr. Agarwal says, “Why perform potentially risky invasive testing when a 1-2 seconds scan performed in the comfort of the office setting can give you the same information? We perform simple and Modern diagnostic tests to avoid the need for invasive testing. We focus on prevention, not waiting for a condition to develop.” Cardiovascular screening can be tailored for executives, women and men, diabetics, athletes, senior citizens, and others.
