Arthur Agatston is an internationally recognized pioneer in coronary disease prevention. Dr. Agatston worked with Dr. Warren Janowitz to develop the Agatston Score (the Calcium Score), a method of screening for coronary calcium as an indicator of atherosclerosis. Used throughout the world, it is considered by most experts to be the single best predictor of a future heart attack.
Dr. Agatston is an associate professor of medicine at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine and a clinical professor of medicine at Florida International University Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine. He is a member of the American College of Cardiology Nutrition Committee and maintains a private practice in Miami Beach with a focus on preventing heart attacks in high-risk patients. This is also the focus of his continuing research.
Dr. Agatston has published more than 200 scientific articles and abstracts and frequently lectures around the U.S. and internationally on diet, cardiac imaging and heart disease prevention. He was named as one of the “Time 100” most influential people of 2004. Among many television appearances, Dr. Agatston was featured along with President Bill Clinton on Sanjay Gupta’s 2011 CNN special, “The Last Heart Attack.”
Known as the author of the best-selling book The South Beach Diet, Dr. Agatston created his approach to healthy eating to help his patients improve their blood chemistries, lose weight, and prevent diabetes and heart disease. Today, The South Beach Diet and its companion books have more than 23 million copies in print worldwide. His latest book The Keto Friendly South Beach Diet was just released in paperback, and incorporates new discoveries from the original principles of the famed low-carb diet.
