We're all about the heart
A CT calcium scoring, also known as a coronary artery calcium test, is a noninvasive scan that takes images of the coronary arteries to determine if there are blockages or narrowing in these vessels. The test measures your calcium or plaque buildup, which is an indicator of coronary artery disease. The higher the calcium score, the higher the risk.

The importance of a CT calcium scoring test
If you’re at risk of heart disease, this test can help you uncover areas where you could modify your lifestyle. These changes could improve your overall vascular health and reduce your chances of having a heart attack or developing heart disease.
Facts that save lives
- CT calcium scoring may help detect asymptomatic abnormalities among high risk populations.
- Higher CT calcium levels in middle-aged people may indicate higher risk for future heart problems.
- Heart disease is still the leading cause of death in America.
