ASCVD Risk Calculator:

This risk estimator is intended as a companion tool to the 2013 ACC/AHA Guideline on the Assessment of Cardiovascular Risk and the 2013 ACC/AHA Guideline on the Treatment of Blood Cholesterol to Reduce Atherosclerotic Cardiovascular Risk in Adults. This risk estimator enables health care providers and patients to estimate 10-year and lifetime risks for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), defined as coronary death or nonfatal myocardial infarction, or fatal or nonfatal stroke, based on the Pooled Cohort Equations and lifetime risk prediction tools. The Risk Estimator is intended for use in those without ASCVD with an LDL-cholesterol <190 mg/dL. The information required to estimate ASCVD risk includes age, sex, race, total cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, systolic blood pressure, blood pressure-lowering medication use, diabetes status, and smoking status.

All of PCA’s facilities are accredited by the Intersocietal Accreditation Commission (IAC).

A "Seal of Approval" Patients Can Count On

PCA’s IAC accreditation demonstrates our commitment to quality care. The requirements for becoming accredited are extremely stringent and maintaining accreditation requires ongoing audits of all aspects related to performance and interpretation of PCA's Vascular, Echocardiography, and Nuclear studies. The IAC must review every aspect of PCA's daily operations before accrediting our facilities. An IAC accreditation certifies that PCA is committed to the performance of quality testing that strives to meet nationally recognized standards.
