Who is this test for?
The early detection of unstable cardiac lesions, combined with the management of risk factors, can help reduce your risk of heart disease and heart attacks.

What is this test used for?
The SMARTVascular Dx test measures the traces of proteins that leak from cardiac lesions in the blood vessel walls. Knowing the presence and levels of these proteins can provide your healthcare provider with valuable information to help determine your risk for a heart attack. A SMARTVascular Dx test may also be used in conjunction with a cholesterol test for a more accurate picture of your heart health.
