Heart Scans For Valentine's Day


If you want to show someone how you really feel this Valentine’s Day, give them a piece of your heart.

The Alvin Community College Diagnostic Cardiovascular Sonography program is now offering heart scans until February 12 to the public to be used for Valentines. The annual event helps raise money for student scholarships and lab supplies. It also raises awareness that February is Heart Health Month.

The heart scans are a simple capture of the person’s heart. It is not intended to be used for any diagnostic purposes. Participants also will be able to add a personal message on the printed scans such as “You are here” or “My heart Beats for You.” A scan takes up to five minutes.

Cost is $6 for a color print and $3 for a black and white print. No appointment is necessary, just drop by room S-107 at the ACC Campus, 3110 Mustang Road.

Scanning is open at different times throughout the day. Call 281-756-5625 for times or click on “ACC Marketplace” at www.alvincollege.edu to pay for a scan.
