Dr. Benson has developed a core competency in the early detection and treatment of cardiovascular disease. He uses a unique combination of non-invasive testing methods to assess overall cardiovascular health. He combines a Carotid IMT (Intima Media Thickness) test, the most accurate noninvasive screening method available for predicting the risk of heart attack or stroke, along with an EndoTherm test, a simple finger sensor test sensitive enough to pick up early cardiovascular disease. Dr. Benson recommends these tests as a preferred non-invasive, more accurate alternative to a cardiac catheterization (coronary angiogram) or stress test. By using these testing methods together which involve no radiation, injections, or related risks, Dr. Benson is able to quickly and accurately predict one's risk of a heart attack or stroke. Contact the medical office to inquire about scheduling.
