Understanding your risk is the first step in preventing heart disease. Through our affiliation with The Methodist Hospital System, Methodist DeBakey Cardiology Associates offers a variety of screening options to help you better understand and manage your risk of developing heart problems.

Calcium Scoring Test: This simple test uses a CT scan to measure the amount of calcium found in the arteries of your heart, also known as your calcium score. If your calcium score is 0, your chance of having a heart attack over the next 2 to 5 years is very low; if calcium is found, you may be at risk for coronary artery disease. Learn more about the calcium scoring test
Vascular Age Screening: This test uses ultrasound to measure the thickness of the inner layer of your carotid artery (the large artery in your neck). The result estimates the "age" of your arteries. If your vascular age is higher than your actual age, you may be at risk for coronary artery disease.
