Audience member Lindsay asks Dr. Oz if getting a coronary scan is worthwhile.
Dr. Oz responds that it depends why someone is doing it. Dr. Oz further explains that the most important thing a coronary scan does is wake you up to the reality that you might have a problem.
Dr. Oz reiterates that if someone is already doing everything right in their life, and that if one has no reason to believe there is a problem with their heart, then a scan is most likely not necessary.
However, if one has vital numbers that are off-base, like cholesterol or blood pressure numbers, or if one feels like there might be an issue with their heart, then it’s a smart call to have a scan.
