Coronary Artery Calcium Scoring

Coronary artery calcium scoring uses a CT (Computed Tomography) scanner to screen for heart disease caused by calcified plaque in the coronary arteries. These calcium deposits can compromise blood supply to the heart which can lead to a heart attack. Our radiologists use the scans to measure the calcium deposits and determine a “score” for your exam. Calcium scoring is an important screening tool to better understand your risk for heart disease.
