About The Book
Don’t get blindsided by a heart attack or stroke. Learn your Cardiac Calcium Score, read this guide, and live a longer, healthier and happier life.
A heart attack or stroke may seem sudden, but it’s not. Plaque begins to develop in your arteries decades before these frightening and life-changing events, often with no warning sign. The only way to learn your true risk is through effective screening, and the best tool for that is CCS.
Learning your score, however, is only the first step. By reading Dr. Janik’s informative and actionable guide, you’ll have the tools to develop a personal prevention plan that will lead to a longer life.
This isn’t a medical textbook or a dry research paper. Rather, it’s a user’s guide to CCS and a road map to better health. As a leader in preventive cardiology, Dr. Janik is uniquely equipped to revolutionize the approach to cardiac screening. In this guide, he explains CCS in clear and accessible terms, acknowledges the physical and emotional challenges patients may face, and quickly gets to the heart of the matter—saving lives.
The movement to support CCS across the globe is growing. By reading Get More from Your Score, you can join this crusade and give potential heart attack victims the warning they deserve.
Dr. Janik’s enlightening book Get More From Your Score is easy-to-read and educational. As a pioneer in research on CCS myself, I support and commend Dr. Janik’s detailed guide on how to detect plaque early and prevent a heart attack.
Cardiac Calcium Scoring is a painless exam that takes about 20 minutes. For the appropriate individual, that’s a worthwhile investment that may pay dividends for decades. Dr. Janik’s insightful guide will help you decide when to have your first CCS scan, and how to use the results to secure long-term heart health.
At the age of 41, I had my first heart attack which required open heart surgery. 30 years later, I had my second heart attack followed by another open-heart surgery and additional bypasses. I believe I could have avoided both incidents if Dr. Janik’s book had been available to me decades ago. The great news is that Get More From Your Score is now available so that your don’t have to walk in my shoes!

Introduction / excerpt:
If you’re reading this, then you probably know that cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of both men and women in developed countries, beating out cancer, infection, and chronic lung disease. It’s a largely preventable condition that has reached epidemic proportions, despite advancements in medical technology and marked growth in pharmaceuticals. In fact, doctors (myself included) spend an estimated 80% of our time with adult patients treating the so-called “risk factors” for cardiovascular disease, including obesity, high cholesterol, hypertension, and diabetes. We focus on lifestyle changes by urging our patients to lose weight, quit smoking, and start exercising. Prescriptions often pile up as we try to achieve optimal numbers for blood pressure, diabetic control, or cholesterol. All the while we operate largely in the dark, never knowing if these risks will actually lead to a heart attack.
But what if this knowledge was obtainable? What if there was a way to accurately predict your personal likelihood of having a heart attack or stroke? What if doctors could use that information to target their care and only prescribe medication to those who actually need it? What if we could finally motivate our patients, friends, and family to take their health into their own hands, before it’s too late? What if we could prevent your first heart attack or stroke, before it happens? Knowing your true risk of heart attack could have the power to change everything.
I have good news. There is a way to accomplish all these things, and it’s easy, painless, and incredibly accurate. It’s called
Cardiac Calcium Scoring, and I know that incorporating it into the practices of physicians worldwide could save millions of lives—maybe even yours. That’s why I decided to write this book.

About Dr. Janik:
Dr. Matt Janik is a preventive cardiologist. His academic training (at Yale, the University of Pennsylvania, Cornell, and Emory) included numerous publications on cardiovascular imaging. He spends much of his time in active clinical practice, counseling individual patients and performing cardiac procedures. He also has a robust research practice, investigating the efficacy of novel therapeutics designed to reduce risk of cardiovascular events.
Dr. Janik founded Your Heart Report, LLC in 2014 with its mission, “To promote the appropriate use of Cardiac Calcium Scoring and to save lives.” He directs a team of experts in the field, from marketing and social media to technical support for CT technicians, and is well known in the medical industry for his dynamic keynote speeches and his “gold standard” CCS Report. He continues to support individual institutions such as hospitals, outpatient practices and imaging centers as they develop quality CCS programs of their own.
Most importantly, he wrote Get More from Your Score so that patients and doctors around the world could efficiently incorporate CCS into their daily heart attack prevention strategy. Appalled by the under-utilization of this vital technology, he created this tell-all guide with a clear aim—to make CCS as common as mammography, colonoscopy, and other exams used for early detection.
Dr. Janik lives in Wilmington, NC with his wife and three sons. Practicing what he preaches, he’s an avid runner and competitive tennis player.
