Ratings of screening tests for heart disease

When it comes to screening tests for heart disease, more is not always better. Some people get tests they don't need while failing to get those they do. To help you choose the tests that are best for you, based on your age, gender, and risk level, here are our Ratings of heart screening tests.

What's behind the Ratings?

These Ratings are based on research by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, an independent group that develops recommendations on preventive health care, combined with our additional analysis.
