 Crazy for wanting 3D image of heart?

I'm a 47 year old white man taking 10 mgs lisinpril and
20mgs Lipitor daily/ Otherwise in good health

Recently on a CBS morning show there was a piece abt
Matt Lauer getting a 3D image of his heart.

The image was VERY clear and detailed and could show a
lot of things

Am I crazy for asking my doctor for such a test without
any symptoms?  Heart disease does run strong in my
family and I do have fear my arteries are clogged
unknown to me. Even tho no symptoms.

Opinions?
