There are a number of tests that doctors use in diagnosing cardiovascular diseases / an Atherosclerosis Diagnosis
If you don’t have any symptoms and have not been diagnosed with cardiovascular disease, it is not easy to tell if your arteries are becoming clogged with plaque.
However, if you have high blood cholesterol, are overweight and get a little exercise, smoke, or have other risk factors, there is a good chance that you have atherosclerosis.
Eventually, it can lead to heart disease, a stroke or other problems.
There are a number of tests that doctors use in diagnosing cardiovascular diseases, including blood tests, electrocardiograms (ECG), stress testing, coronary angiography, ultrasound, and computed tomography (CT).
If you are at high risk for cardiovascular disease, your health professional may suggest that you be tested.
