Cardiac CT is an incredibly useful test but you need to understand its limitations.
Thank you for the info. Cardiologist can’t even explain it to me.
At age 77, I have a CAC of 300. I have read that those, like me, who have spent years in Ultra endurance events tend to have a higher score.
What is the difference between a CTCA and an MRA coronary. Is CTCA replaced coronary angiogram as the best modality for diagnosis of coronary artery disease?
Thank you for the clear explanation. Female, high LDL/apoB but 0 CAC at 63. Tried Zypitamag, but had terrible reaction from it. 2nd CAC scan cardiologist wants in January 2024. I will be 67 and then we will reassess. I want to go on lipid lowering, (another statin, PCSK9, if I can afford it). Exercise, BP normal, A1C normal, etc. it’s this darn ApoB at 114!!
