Step 1: Get Tested
In-Depth Artery Screening in Woodstock, GA
Find out if you’re at risk for a heart-related event through our artery screening in Woodstock, GA. We’re equipped with the knowledge and technology to determine your risk level through this assessment. If you have a high risk, you might not find out until it’s already happened.
In addition to being the name of our organization, CardioSound is when you are at low-risk for heart disease. Our in-depth tests allow us to determine your risk level and how we can lower it. We start with an artery and genetics test, which tells us precisely at what risk level you are.
Determining Your Risk Level
When you’re at low risk for a heart-related event, there is nothing more that you need to do. However, if the risk is high, the first thing you need to ask yourself is “why.” If you’ve survived a heart attack or stroke, then your risk for cardiovascular disease goes even higher. In those cases, it is also important to ask why you experienced a heart-related event and what you can do to ensure you don’t have another one.
We’ll work closely with you to determine the answers to these questions. Once we know the cause of your heart issues, whether they’ve come from dieting or genetics, we’ll help you come up with a plan on how to reduce the risk for cardiovascular disease. With our assistance, achieving a healthy lifestyle and sticking to it is possible.
Testing for Cardiovascular Risks
To most accurately test your level of risk, we check a variety of components. First, we’ll assess your heart calcium score, which helps us see if there is any inflammation in your arteries. Normally, arteries are clean, with no calcium. Second, we measure plaque in your peripheral arteries and check thickness. Third, a genetics test gives us information about how rapidly your disease may progress.

CAlcium in the heart arteries
Calcium is a marker for inflammation in the arteries of the heart. In the heart scan above, white spots are the calcium deposits in the arteries. Normally, arteries are clean with no calcium.
plaque in peripheral arteries
Ultrasound measures how thick the artery disease is.
Genetic testing gives us information about how rapidly your artery disease may progress.
