Predicting Risk of Coronary DiseaseLab tests also can help predict a patient's risk of having a heart attack. A blood test for high sensitivity C-reactive protein (CRP) detects the presence of inflammation that can lead to blockage of arteries. The CRP test, combined with tests for cholesterol and triglycerides, helps doctors evaluate the presence of heart disease. The CRP test costs between $60 and $150, but can be critical in helping avoid heart attack that can cost $28,000.
