Cenegenics Carolinas to Offer Free Carotid Interna-Media Thickness

(CIMT) Ultrasound Scans to Women During February in Recognition of

American Heart Month

CHARLESTON, S.C., Feb. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Representatives from

Cenegenics Carolinas, the southeast's leading age management practice,

today announced that the practice will offer free Carotid

Interna-Media Thickness (CIMT) ultrasound scans to women in

recognition of American Heart Month this February.

The CIMT ultrasound scan is a non-invasive test that is designed to

help predict future cardiovascular events, including heart attacks and

stroke.

"Many are unaware that heart disease is the number one killer of women

today, killing one out of every three women," said Dr. Mickey Barber,

CEO and CMO of Cenegenics Carolinas. "During American Heart Month,

Cenegenics Carolinas would like to draw attention to the fact that

heart disease is also preventable. The American Heart Association

recommends CIMT testing to all patients over 45 years of age, and

younger if the patient has multiple risk factors such as a family

history. We are happy to be able to offer women the opportunity to

track their current health and help prevent future heart disease and

encourage women in our area to take advantage of this procedure, which

could potentially save their life."
