Screening and early detection of cardiovascular diseases
Screening tests for people aged over 40 or people who are at risk of cardiovascular diseases: Screening and diagnostic tests include chest X-ray scan, electrocardiography (EKG), cardiac stress test e.g. exercise stress test, echocardiography, stress echocardiography and cardiac computed tomography (CT) for calcium scoring to determine the buildup of atherosclerotic plaque that blocks or narrows the arteries. If myocardia infarction is suspected, additional test or procedure is further required, such as coronary computed tomography angiography with the injection of contrast media or cardiac catheterization using a catheter – a long thin tube through groin or wrist.
Screening tests for people aged below 40 or people who have no risk factors of cardiovascular diseases: screening tests usually involve chest X-ray scan, electrocardiography (EKG)/ Holter EKG to determine abnormal heart rhythms and echocardiography to diagnose congenital heart diseases.
