TAKING CARE OF YOUR BRAIN
Brain Health is optimized brain function. It is having your brain work the best that it can at this particular moment in time for you. Brain Health is in constant flux based on how well you have slept, eaten, attended to stresses and taken care of yourself.

Calcium Scoring Test
This is a test I recommend to see if atherosclerosis plaques that are calciﬁed exist in the arteries of the heart. If you have a cardiac stent this test is not helpful since the stent distorts the results. It is a 3 minute CAT Scan of your heart.
|CORONARY CALCIUM SCORE||TREATMENT|
No identiﬁable plaque. Risk of coronary artery disease very low (<5%)
|1 - 10||
Mild identiﬁable plaque. Risk of coronary artery disease low (<10%)
11 - 100
Deﬁnite, at least mild atherosclerotic plaque. Mild or minimal coronary narrowings likely.
|101 - 400||
Deﬁnite, at least moderate atherosclerotic plaque. Mild coronary artery disease highly likely. Signiﬁcant narrowings possible
Extensive atherosclerotic plaque. High likelihood of at least one signiﬁcant coronary narrowing.
