CT Cardiac Calcium Score Screening

What is CT Cardiac Calcium Scoring?

CT Cardiac Calcium Scoring is often used to determine a person’s risk of heart disease or cardiovascular disease. It is a non-invasive imaging procedure used to detect the smallest amount of calcium, or plaque, in your coronary arteries using a multi-slice CT scanner. This 10-minute test is the best step to take to detect early heart disease.

Text that reads: Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women.
