Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD or CAD) is caused by a buildup of “fatty” material called plaque in the blood vessels that provide crucial oxygen to the heart.

Non-invasive cardiac testing gives cardiologists valuable information about the heart muscle, arteries, and valves, but sometimes these results are inconclusive or don’t give enough information to guide treatment.

One of the biggest misconceptions that I have noted over the years as an interventional cardiologist is that most patients think a heart attack “just happens” – that it appeared out of nowhere.
