Mistake # 2: Getting the wrong type of heart test
Is there a heart attack in your future three, five or 10 years down the road? Most traditional cardiac testing (i.e., angiograms) focuses on identifying existing blockages to the heart. However, new AI technology, including Fountain Life’s Coronary Computed Tomography Angiography (CCTA), is able to identify the newer, soft plaque that is prone to rupture. This provides an early alarm, signalling the need to implement changes and treatments to prevent future heart attacks, heart failure, strokes and even dementia.
