Heart Scan to predict the risk of heart disease by Bangkok Heart Hospital



Published
Heart scan to predict the risk of cardiovascular disease for people who have potential risk factors, e.g. family history with heart disease and chronic underlying diseases, e.g. diabetes, dyslipidemia, hypertension, central obesity and smoking. If at least 2 of these risk factors present, the risk of developing cardiovascular disease substantially rises. CT Coronary Artery Calcium Scan (CAC) is a test to detect calcified plaque on the walls of the heart’s arteries. This non-invasive test is used to predict the risk of developing coronary artery disease and chronic myocardial infarction, allowing a proactive health care plan conducted in a timely manner.
