What is Heart Screening?

Heart screening is a safe and accurate screening tool to identify the causes of heart disease. Blood tests, cardiac ultrasonography and calcium scoring CT can help specialists to detect possible coronary artery disease before you have signs and symptoms.

It is simple and painless, and it can provide you with the preventive measures to manage health behaviors and lifestyle so you can lower the risk of cardiovascular disease. It is recommended to go for heart screening once a year, especially if you are 40 years old and above.

How It Works

At our affiliated clinic, screening includes in-depth arteriosclerosis test (blood test), cardiac ultrasonography / carotid ultrasonography, calcium scoring CT and other additional examinations.

Other key factors for monitoring cardiovascular health include:
· Blood pressure
· Cholesterol
· Body weight
· Waist circumference
· Blood glucose
· Physical activity
· Lifestyle (e.g whether you are a smoker, diet etc)

Tests Details

Arteriosclerosis Blood Test:
· Blood test to detect your levels of cholesterol and blood sugar. Increased levels may indicate higher risk of arteriosclerosis.
· You would need to fast for 9 to 12 hrs before the test. Drinking water is allowed.

Cardiac ultrasonography:
· Performed to examine the size and shape of the cardiac chambers in systole and diastole, the appearance of heart valves, and the orientation of the great vessels.

Carotid ultrasonography:
· A technique done to evaluate structural details of carotid arteries. It is an ultrasound-based diagnostic imaging process used to diagnose carotid artery stenosis (CAS) as well as assessing arteriosclerotic plaque morphology and characteristics.

Calcium Scoring CT:
· An examination using the CT scanner to examine the coronary arteries to measure the amount of calcium in the coronary arteries, which is an indicator of plaque amount.

Advantages and Limitations of Heart Screening

· Painless
· Safe procedures
· Detects coronary artery disease at an early stage
· Allows you to make changes in your diet and lifestyle to prevent heart disease

· Those with an increased risk of having heart disease should get the screening more often


· Although calcium scoring CT is non-invasive, women should inform the doctor or CT technologist if they are pregnant, or have a possibility of being pregnant to avoid potential risks to the baby.
· Radiation associated with calcium scoring CT may slightly increase your risk of getting cancer, but the benefit of an accurate diagnosis will always outweigh the risks.
· Please discuss your lifestyle such as diet and physical activity with the doctor. It is also highly recommended to disclose family history of any disease, including diabetes or heart attack. This can help to determine your risk factors and may guide you in terms of lifestyle changes of early treatment / prevention strategy.
