  • Overview

    Predicting the risk of heart attack is a tricky business. Dr. Carl Orringer, visiting associate professor of medicine at Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and board-certified lipidologist who serves on the National Lipid Board of the National Lipid Association, talks with host Dr. Larry Kaskel about a non-invasive five-minute CT scan known as calcium scoring, an important tool for early detection. Dr. Orringer outlines how calcium scoring is a good predictor of cardiovascular disease and can identify patients at risk for heart attack — patients, such as women and diabetic individuals, who would not be considered candidates under traditional risk scoring models.
