HeartSmart IMT technology was used as part of the extensive cardiovascular pre-screening performed on all of the contestants on NBC’s “The Biggest Loser” television series. The goal was to heighten the awareness of the increased risk obesity and excess body fat causes for cardiovascular disease. These scans were performed by a prominent Beverly Hills cardiologist, who sent the images to heartSmart for analysis, IMT measurement and reporting. But, you don’t have to go to Beverly Hills to take advantage of this life-saving technology. It is available right here in Connecticut at Alternity Healthcare.
