Cardiac Calcium Scoring

Are you at risk of a heart attack? Your Cardiac Calcium Score can provide the answer.

Cardiac Calcium Scoring is a screening test that detects and measures the amount of calcium-containing plaque build-up in your arteries using a computed tomography (CT) scanner. Knowing the amount of plaque in your arteries may help your doctor identify heart disease before symptoms appear, giving you the chance to address concerns before serious damage occurs.

Who should receive Cardiac Calcium Scoring?

Men over the age of 45 and women over the age of 50, especially those at risk of a heart attack, should receive this test. People who smoke, are obese, have high blood pressure, have high cholestorol or a family history of heart disease are considered at risk of a heart attack. Cardiac Calcium Scoring is for people who are NOT currently having symptoms of heart disease or other heart conditions and requires a referral from a primary care or other physician.

What is the cost?

Cardiac Calcium Scoring costs $99. Your physician will receive your results within 48 hours.
