Everyone is on the bandwagon these days about improving health, everyone that is from Dr. Oz to daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres. And for good reason, we are an overweight and out of shape society, and its time that we take our health seriously. And thanks to the advances in technology today there are new and exciting ways to assist anyone to achieve their goal of a healthier lifestyle. One of those new advances in medicine is heart scans. A heart scan is a very simple and painless procedure that can assist your doctor in identifying problems and diseases at a very early stage.

A heart scan can tell if you're at higher risk of a heart attack or other problems long before you have any outward symptoms of disease. A heart scan is able to measure the amount of calcium in the walls of your coronary arteries, this information in combination with your health information, can help your doctor to assess your risk of coronary artery disease.

Heart disease is caused by a build-up of plaque in your arterial walls that blocks the heart muscles flow of blood. It literally takes years for plaque to build up. Plaques are a combination of cholesterol and fatty acids. It is the calcium deposits that are a byproduct of this buildup that causes heart attacks. With a heart scan, these deposits can be revealed years before any symptoms appear. This means that you can be treated early for heart disease if you have a scan performed.

Heart Scan Procedure

A heart scan takes just five minute and produces forty pictures of your heart between beats. These diagnostic images reveal early calcium plaque build-up that looks like white spots on the walls of the arteries. The greatest news of all is that heart disease is treatable and reversible.

If you need heart surgery, surgeons from your area can provide comprehensive, diagnosis and repair for damaged blood vessels.

Risk Factors

• High blood pressure

• Diabetes

• High cholesterol

• Family history of stroke

Certain depressed patients who suffer from heart disease have nearly double the risk of dying over a seven-year period compared with other depressed patients, researchers say. The patients most at risk are those who suffer from the most severe depression within a few weeks of being hospitalized for a cardiac event, such as a heart attack, and those whose depression doesn't get better within six months, according to study findings published in the September issue of Archives of General Psychiatry.
