This test goes far beyond your basic lipid test, for starters this test helps to reclassify a patients cardiovascular risk. Nearly half of all heart attack patients were found to have no prior risk which would indicate they were heading toward an attack. Cardio IQ Ion Mobility tests directly detects,  measures and quantifies the number and size of all lipoprotein subfractions.  Knowing what particles make up your LDL and HDL cholesterol may be important. Ion Mobility Technology provides subclass separation that will allow your healthcare provider to identify your cardiovascular risk over time. Following the change in your lipid profile as you respond to diet, exercise and possible medication to reduce your cardiovascular risk is important. Ion Mobility provides the opportunity to determine if treatment is working and if not, optimize the aggressiveness of therapy to hopefully make a difference that can be seen in the Ion Mobility measurement and graphical representation of your LDL and HDL particles.
