Together We Can Save Lives!
Heart Disease is the world’s biggest killer. 1 in 4 people will die from heart disease or stroke. Heart disease is progressive and worsens over time unless you identify it and take action.
A heart attack is often a failure of prevention that has been building up for many years. Currently, 70% of people will suffer a heart attack following a plaque rupture which blocks the flow of blood to the heart.
Let’s get the information out to identify who is at risk – and take action to save their lives. Everyone has a basic right to this information!

Modern Technology Could Save Countless Lives
Heart Disease is the world’s biggest killer. Around 1 in 4 people will die from heart disease or stroke. We at the IHDA are working to change this – by taking advantage of the best technology. The world’s top experts in cardiology are aware of how important the Coronary Artery Calcification scan is – and how it can identify the genuine level of heart disease in any individual. This will enable the high-risk people to take action, and stop their hidden disease from causing a heart attack. In this three minute video, the top experts explain the basics of the scan.
About the CT Scan and CAC Score
Currently risk-estimation tools such as the “Framingham Risk Calculator” are used to take a guess at whether an individual is likely to have a heart attack. In contrast, the Coronary Calcification Scan can directly see the disease level in the arteries of the heart. This scan result or “CAC Score” is far more powerful in assessing an individual’s real risk. It can take a huge amount of people and re-classify them from the vague “intermediate risk” into genuinely “high risk” or “low risk”. Crucially, it can enable the correct preventative treatment for those identified. The short video on the right explains.
About IHDA - The David Bobbett Story
David Bobbett is one of Ireland’s most successful entrepreneurs. In 2012 he had a history of passing all his medicals with flying colors – and his doctors perceived him as “bulletproof”. But that was all an illusion, brought about by not having access to the technology that actually measures your true level of heart disease.
Here in three minutes is the story of why he founded the IHDA – a shocking story, but one that is full of hope for everyone who is at risk for premature heart attack !
CAC Recommendations in Current Guidelines
Latest US Guidelines Recommend the CAC Score for Intermediate Risk People
The most recent USA 2018 guidelines from the American College of Cardiology (ACC), the American Heart Association (AHA) and many other bodies are clear. The CAC is now enshrined with”Level 2A Evidence” as the method for clarifying middle- or intermediate risk populations – by looking directly at the disease level that individuals actually have inside. The short interview here summarizes the recent improvements – and just below is a selection of news articles and publications covering the new drive to use CAC:
