A blocked artery in your heart could put you at risk of a heart attack, so it is one of the issues that your cardiologist will look out for during heart screening. You might also have tests to check your heart for blockages if you’ve been having symptoms that could be caused by coronary artery disease.
Heart disease affects approximately 7 million people in the UK, but many of us are unaware that we are living with a cardiovascular condition. Cardiac screening can detect these hidden conditions so that we are able to get treatment. It can also reveal who is at risk of developing heart disease in the future, which can enable us to take steps to prevent these kinds of problems. Should you have your cardiovascular health assessed to find out if you could be affected?
