CT
Calcium Scoring

  • A CT scan for coronary calcium scoring is a non-invasive way of obtaining information about the presence, location and extent of calcified plaque in the coronary arteries—the vessels that supply blood to the heart. Calcified plaque results when there is a build-up of fat and other substances under the inner layer of the artery. People with this disease have an increased risk for heart attacks.
