Dr. Warrick Bishop, author of "Know Your Real Risk of Heart Attack” shares a personal story of how current assessment for heart attack risk is not good enough and how we can do better. Cardiac CT imaging can bring precision to prevention and save lives.
In this presentation, he shares the hurdles to change that are costing lives. He’s on a mission to prevent heart attack - and he needs your help! Doctor Warrick Bishop is a practicing cardiologist, best selling author, and keynote speaker and who has a passion to help prevent heart disease on a global scale. Warrick graduated from the University of Tasmania, School of Medicine, in 1988. He completed his advanced training in cardiology in Hobart, Tasmania, becoming a fellow of the Royal Australian College of Physicians.
It became clear to Warrick the more precise we can be in the information we have in regard to a patients heart health and the real risk of heart attack, the better we can look after that person, it seems so obvious when you say it like that, but that opportunity is still only new and not broadly utilized in the medical community.
