HeartTest in , Florida introduces EBA (Electron Beam Angiography) - HeartTest becomes the first facility in Florida to offer this state-of-the-art procedure.

, Fl., December 11, 2000 - HeartTest, the EBT (Electron Beam Tomography) facility in , Florida, which currently features the Heart Scan, Lung Scan and Body Scan for the early detection of heart disease, cancer, and other conditions, announces today that they will be offering the state-of-the-art EBA procedure with the Imatron EBT scanner.

Electron Beam Angiography (EBA) is a procedure that allows us to image the arteries of the body, including the coronary arteries, and is a desirable option to the traditional cardiac catheterization procedure for many patients. The EBA procedure takes approximately 20 minutes at the HeartTest facility, only requires an intravenous injection of contrast, and requires no significant recovery period, no disrobing, and no use of catheters. The traditional cardiac catheterization usually requires a hospital stay, involves the insertion of catheters through the aorta and into the heart, involves significant risk, and is a very costly procedure.

"We are very pleased and excited to bring EBA to South Florida and to our HeartTest center. To be able to image the coronary arteries without inserting catheters into the patient's body is a major breakthrough in medical technology. I am proud to be associated with HeartTest, the only facility in the state of Florida to offer this state-of-the-art procedure," said Dr. Joseph T. Horgan, Medical Director for HeartTest.

HeartTest Medical Director, Dr. Joseph T. Horgan, is a well-known South Florida Cardiologist who has practiced invasive and non-invasive cardiology in South Florida for the past 16 years. Dr. Horgan's credentials include: Past Chief of Staff of Memorial Hospital Pembroke, fellow in the American College of Cardiology and the American College of Physicians, founder of University Heart Institute Cardiovascular Group, founder of Memorial Hospital Pembroke cardiac catheterization laboratory, director of Memorial Hospital West cardiac catheterization laboratory.

The HeartTest center is conveniently located next to the Pembroke Lakes Mall, just a short distance from I-75. HeartTest has been providing Heart Scans and Lung Scans to patients since May 2000, and just recently began offering the full Body Scan, for the early detection of heart disease and cancer. Using the Imatron EBT scanner, HeartTest is able to offer patients "gold standard" technology, which is up to 15 times faster than conventional CT scanners, and has been substantiated by hundreds of medical studies.

For more information about HeartTest, or to discuss the EBA procedure with Dr. Horgan, please contact Larry Kaminsky Vice President Finance and Administration at (954) 432-7811.
