Heart disease is the leading cause of death for men and women in the United States. Cardiac Scoring is a safe, painless test that can detect potential heart problems in advance. The results allow your doctor to calculate your risk of heart attack and detect early blockage and plaque build up. This gives you the opportunity to make lifestyle changes that can help prevent or minimize the advancement of heart disease.
