They say that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. We’re told variations of this old saying throughout life, and we’re reminded that if we don’t smoke, exercise, and stay away from fatty foods, we’ll live a longer, healthier, and happier life.
But what happens if you’ve done all the right things and you’re still confronted with a diagnosis of atherosclerosis? Facing atherosclerosis can be incredibly difficult. The situation becomes more complex when the disease seems to come out of left field. Oftentimes, physicians are only able to spot the disease after it’s already too late.
This condition affects more than three million people per year. It’s a silent disease in which your arteries gradually harden and become blocked by plaque. One of the profound tragedies of atherosclerosis is that the majority of today’s clinical tests miss early warning signs, robbing patients of the chance to have it definitively treated.
Now, there’s a better way. Developed by Sotere Medical Solutions, the Sotere Cardiac Platform is a non-invasive method designed to identify signs of early-onset atherosclerosis. This state-of-the-art procedure is FDA-registered and cleared, has a clinical accuracy rate of 97 percent, and only takes 15 minutes.
With that ounce of prevention, you or your loved ones have the chance to sidestep a life-altering medical condition. To learn more about who we are and what we do, contact us online or by phone today.
