In this episode we “curbside” SoCal Cardiologist, Dr. Neel Patel. If you’re like us and confused by the smorgasbord of cardiac imaging and stress testing then this show is a must listen. Whether you’re in the clinic or on call for Internal Medicine, Dr. Patel has your answers on coronary artery calcium scoring, coronary CT scans and all types of stress testing.
Dr. Patel recommends that you go outside. He didn’t mention this site expressly, but we think it’s a good starting point. http://www.greatoutdoors.com
