  1. It’s truly professional negligence that more at risk individuals are not being told to get a Cardiac Calcium Score. Blood tests are virtually worthless compared to this test in predictive value, yet middle aged individuals with clear risk factors go into physicals every year and are not told by their physicians to get this test. Are they waiting for their patients to keel over so that they can charge for quadruple bypasses and stents? Truly unconscionable.
