Meet one man, Brad Wayland, who averted a potential health crisis after having a CT scan for his coronary calcium scoring – a move which quickly adjusted his scheduled business trip. Centerpoint Medical Center's Dr. Carl Akin explains how the simple and noninvasive CT scan shows the location and extent of calcified plaque in coronary arteries. If plaque builds up, it can cause serious heart issues. Brad talks about the importance of having the test to his life. If have questions or would like to learn about this test, please contact your physician.
