I shall be posting the first session of my 3-part Workshop on CT Heart Scans and Coronary Calcium Scores this Wednesday, March 11th, 2020 during our Undoctored Virtual Meetup at 8 pm EDT/7 pm CDT/6 pm MDT/5 pm PDT. This will be the first of a 3-part series that covers all the issues, concerns, questions that people have about this very important way to assess heart disease risk, better than any measure of cholesterol or other method.
The first session will also be hosted here for non-Members of the Undoctored Inner Circle, as well. The entire 3-part Workshop will therefore be posted only in the Inner Circle, however. I invite you to join our Undoctored Inner Circle for full access to our discussions and deeper content.
In this 3-part series, I shall discuss issues such as:
- How does a CT heart scan work?
- What is a coronary calcium score?
- Why measure calcium–is it a reliable way to gauge risk?
- How much radiation is involved?
- Once you have a coronary calcium score, what happens to it? Can it be stopped or reversed?
- Do statin drugs have any effect?
- What is the effect of diet?
- When should you repeat a score?
