Janik Of Wilmington Health Publishes Cardiology Book

By Ken Little, posted Sep 8, 2017
Matt Janik, a Wilmington Health cardiologist, recently published a book entitled “Get More from Your Score.”

The book is a patient guide to Cardiac Calcium Scoring (CSS) and how to use it to live a longer, healthier life, according to Wilmington Health officials.

The release described the CSS procedure as “a quick, painless, non-invasive procedure performed in a CT scanner. During this 30-second test, cardiologists can determine the degree and severity of hard plaque in the coronary arteries and interpret their patients’ risk for heart attack and heart disease – before it’s too late.”

“I’m passionate about the value CSS can have for both physicians and patients,” Janik said in the release. “Doctors can use it as a diagnostic tool to treat heart disease earlier. And the more patients understand about their CSS and what that number means, the more they can make changes to lower their risk of heart attack in the future.”

Janik also heads Wilmington Health Cardiology’s HeartScore CSS program and is the founder of Your Heart Report.
