About Sarasota Memorial's Cardiovascular Disease Assessment Center
Despite advances in medicine, cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of death of both men and women. Its symptoms emerge silently in the body long before they cascade into a catastrophic event such as heart attack, stroke, heart failure, kidney failure or sudden death.
Early detection is key. Just as a colonoscopy or routine mammogram can detect colon or breast cancer early so can cardiovascular disease be detected at its earliest stages with the right tests
The Cardiovascular Disease Assessment Center at Sarasota Memorial offers people concerned about cardiac health one of the most comprehensive series of tests available to detect early markers of the disease and all of the vital information you and your doctor need to safeguard your heart.
Pioneering, Evidence-Based Results
Sarasota Memorial uses the Cohn Prevention Centers disease score, which research has shown to identify the earliest evidence of cardiovascular disease in men and women. Studies show that the center's combined screenings detect moderate to significant signs of early stage cardiovascular disease in about 50 percent of people tested who otherwise show no symptoms.
The protocols were pioneered by cardiologist Jay N.Cohn, MD, professor of medicine at the University of Minnesota. Sarasota Memorial's Cardiovascular Disease Assessment Center is thefirst in the nation to replicate the proprietary university research program.
