- Cardiac ultrasound and MRI: Used to see the size, shape, and function of the heart.
- Electrocardiogram and blood tests: these are used to identify a heart attack or damaged areas of the heart.
- Angiography: to analyze blood flow in the heart.
- Stress test: in order to monitor the heart during physical exercise.
The best option to prevent a heart attack is to maintain a healthy lifestyle. This means keeping an optimal body weight, eating a healthy and balanced diet, minimizing alcohol and coffee intake, managing stress, exercising, and quitting smoking.
