Overview


What is CT Calcium Scoring?

CT Calcium Scoring uses X-Rays to get images of the coronary arteries to identify blockage or narrowing in case of plaque buildup. CT stands for Computed Tomography. This scan can help indicate your risk of coronary artery disease.


The scan is not for everyone. Since the body is exposed to radiation, you should only get it done if your doctor tells you to take it in order to find the cause of an underlying symptom. As most heart diseases go unnoticed, this is one way to identify early heart issues before you have a cardiac event. The scan will give a number known as the Agatston score. Zero means there is no calcium. However, a higher number means your doctor has to come up with a plan.
