Screening tests for heart disease: What to know | Dr Johann christopher | CARE Hospitals

Dr. Johann Christopher, Consultant Cardiologist, says that there is a rise in heart diseases in present days because of poor lifestyle. Further, the risk increases if there is a family history of heart disease. Hence, screening is required from the age of 20 years in such individuals. Screening tests usually include blood tests (fasting lipid and glucose profile), imaging tests such as electrocardiogram, echocardiogram, chest X-ray, and coronary CT. Every year, World Heart Day is celebrated on the 29th of September. This day was first announced by the World Heart Federation to make people around the world aware of cardiovascular diseases and heart health.
