Heart Screening Tests

How's Your Heart?

When to consider Calcium Scoring:

If any of the factors below apply to you:

  • High blood cholesterol levels
  • A family history of heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Cigarette smoking
  • Being overweight or obese
  • Being physically inactive

Calcium Scoring CT

A Calcium Scoring CT Scan is painless and non-invasive. It uses a special machine to obtain multiple x-ray images of the heart and heart vessels (more detailed than conventional x-rays). The images allow a physician to determine your Calcium Score - which reflects the degree and extent of calcium deposits in the walls of your coronary arteries, the vessels that supply oxygen-containing blood to the heart.

This CT scan gives you and your physician an idea of whether coronary artery disease is present despite a lack of symptoms, or is likely to develop. Together with your doctor, you can then decide what measures you can take to avoid heart disease.
