While a physician’s referral is not required for this exam, we do expect you to provide the name of your primary care physician at the time of scheduling your exam. Your physician will be able to review the results of the exam with you, including any incidental findings. If you do not have a primary care physician you may call 1-877-LGH-WELL and someone will be happy to assist you with obtaining one.

The cost of this procedure is $100. Payment will be due at the time services are provided. We accept cash, check, and all major credit cards.

There is a possibility that your test may have to be rescheduled if your heart rate does not fall within the range set by our physicians. If that becomes necessary, then the CT Technologists will give you instructions on the day of your appointment.
