A heart scan is one of the easiest scans you can get. Simply lie down on a table, fully clothed, and hold your breath for 15-20 seconds. That’s all there is to it! And it’s not claustrophobic. Here are some of the benefits:
No matter what your results, at Cruxpoint it’s all good news: You found your heart disease before it found you. If your results require action, we have the protocols proven to help you lower your heart attack risk by up to 95%.
If you receive a coronary artery calcium score above zero, not to fear. We guarantee results when you participate in our BioHack Your Heart Health program.
A Coronary Artery Calcium (CAC) Score shows the amount of calcium present in the coronary arteries. A first scan establishes the baseline, and program participants take a yearly heart scan to track the progression of plaque. As long as progression is under 15%, risk of heart attack and stroke are reduced about 95%. Also, many patients in our program are able to reverse the amount of calcified plaque, actually lowering their hardening of the arteries.

Frequently Asked Questions
Remember: Heart disease is optional. A baseline heart scan shows your degree of heart disease. Subsequent heart scans will show progression. With 1 in 3 Americans dying prematurely from cardiovascular disease and millions more living with a lowered quality of life, measuring your heart health status is the first step towards changing it.
Doctors recommend a baseline heart scan for women 50+ and men 45+. In fact, women are 7x more likely to die from heart disease than from breast cancer! Most heart attacks actually occur in people with “normal” cholesterol, and stress tests miss most people at risk for heart attacks. A heart scan is the best way to measure cardiovascular disease.
First, we want couples to have a shared understanding of the results of the scans. Second, because these are truly quality of life issues, we believe that decisions about “What should we do?” are best made by couples deciding together. Third, success will come from couples being committed together. We have found that success is lower when only one person in the couple understands, makes the decisions, and commits to the protocols. This is a journey of loving and supporting each other.
