Today’s guest, Sharlene Dean, MSCCJ, NRCMA, EMT Implementation Specialist at Vasolabs, is an educator who helps train dentists and their teams in implementing CIMT (Carotid Intima-Media Thickness Test) scanners into the dental practice. CIMT scans are being integrated into dental offices as next step, whole patient care for scanning for heart health, cardiovascular disease, stroke, dementia, and Alzheimer’s.
In today’s episode, Victoria, Chad, and Sharlene discuss how CIMT scans reveal risk factors including:
Patient diet and how tests help determine the healthiest diet for individual patient health.
How CIMT differs from a flow study and what that means for patient health.
How a CIMT training works and a discussion on the benefits of systemic and integrated patient care to the overall health of patients.
