Knowing your risk of this dangerous condition is the first step in prevention. With a few simple tests (a fasting cholesterol test and a calcium scoring test), the Preventive Cardiology Center at Iowa Heart can give you and your physician the knowledge you need to assess your risk or heart attacks and coronary artery disease and, if necessary, begin changing your lifestyle for the better.
