DENVER (AP) – A company that conducts CT scans has closed its Denver office after an investigation by the Colorado health department.

A report by a Denver TV station in September had questioned Heart Check America’s sales tactics.

Health officials said Monday that an inspection of Heart Check America in April showed the company conducted CT scans on some patients without orders from a Colorado-licensed doctor. Health officials say they also were concerned that a machine that was scanning patients didn’t produce images of a sufficient quality for its intended diagnoses.

The health department says when officials tried to follow up last week, they found Heart Check America’s Denver office empty.

The company’s website lists other locations in Nevada, Illinois, California and Washington, D.C. Its voice mail box wasn’t accepting messages Monday night.
