Carotid Intima-Media Thickness (CIMT) Test
Carotid Intima Media Thickness (CIMT) is a non-invasive diagnostic test for early cardiovascular disease. Early detection of cardiovascular disease allows you to develop a treatment plan to protect your cardiovascular health and prevent the occurrence of heart attack or stroke. The CIMT Test consists of an ultrasound of the carotid arteries located in your neck. It is a safe and painless test that only takes ten minutes in a medical room. The test also includes an assessment of any plaque in your arteries. With this test you will receive an “age” of your arteries. You can follow your CIMT over time. With treatment, you can improve your CIMT score and reverse any inflammation in your arteries.
