If you are a man and over age 40 or a woman and over age 45, you may have one or more risk factors for heart disease, even if you are the picture of health. Family history, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking and diabetes are all factors leading to a good reason to get a heart calcium scoring exam.

Women's heart health
Women and heart disease
Cold sweats, unusual tiredness, anxiety and loss of appetite might sound like symptoms of hormone changes or getting older but could actually be signs of heart disease, the leading cause of death for women.
Most people often think of heart disease as a man’s disease, but heart attacks affect more women than men and they are often more severe in women. Because women experience heart disease differently than men, at Avista Adventist Hospital, we believe treatment should be different as well.
Avista’s approach to women’s heart health
Our cardiology specialists are experts in providing female-focused heart care. We understand the unique signs and symptoms for women, which is why we provide women of all ages with prevention, early detection and treatment. Plus, we offer women the expertise of a female cardiologist – one of only a few in Denver.
Our cardiologists offer women a wide range of diagnostics, customized treatments, non-invasive procedures and endovascular interventions – such as stents, balloons and laser technology - to treat blockages of the arteries.
