Performed using advanced CT scan technology, calcium scoring uncovers warning signs of heart disease. This advanced technology can detect the presence of calcium deposits in the coronary arteries, the vessels that supply blood to the heart. These deposits can calcify and over time lead to angina (chest pain) or heart attack.
Because calcium is a marker of heart disease, the amount of calcium detected on a cardiac CT scan – a calcium score – provides useful information for you and your physician.
