The good news is that if you have risks factor for heart disease or even if you don't have any risk factors, you can have a heart CT scan performed to see if your heart is showing any symptoms of heart disease.

Plaques are a combination of cholesterol and fatty acids. It is the calcium deposits that are a by product of this buildup that causes heart attacks.
