Great article - thx! 

Hey, I believe this is what Dr. Gould uses:

http://www.radcliffecardiology.com/articles/protocol-fundamentals-coronary-computed-tomography-angiography

https://clinicaltrials.gov/ct2/show/NCT00756379

I'll see if this is what is mentioned in his book.

And, no, this is not avaiable to the general public yet.  Right now it's only Heart Scans and IMT's as far as I k now.
THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE BOOK ON TRT/TESTOSTERONE:
https://www.amazon.com/Natural-Versus-Testosterone-Therapy-Myer/dp/1523210532/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1499116128&sr=8-1&keywords=natural+versus+testosterone+therapy
And check out my New Peak Testosterone Program: http://www.peaktestosterone.com/peak_testosterone_program
If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.
