Every minute of every day someone dies of a heart attack in America. Five times more women die of heart disease than they do of breast cancer. The Coronary calcium scan has been referred to as the mammogram of the heart. The Coronary calcium scan was invented 30 years ago. Yet it is only now that it is slowly beginning to be accepted as a useful tool by the medical community. Since the Coronary calcium scan was invented, 4 million people have died suddenly with no apparent symptoms of heart disease. The vast majority could have been saved. The cost of a scan is a few hundred dollars. The cost of a stent is tens of thousands of dollars.
