Download Patient Education

A Coronary Artery Calcium Scoring CT Scan takes pictures of the heart. The pictures are more detailed than a typical x-ray. The pictures focus on the arteries supplying blood to the heart (coronary arteries). The Coronary Artery Calcium Scoring CT Scan can detect and measure the extent of the calcium deposits in the coronary arteries. This may help determine a diagnosis of heart disease early. Your doctor will use this information to determine the best treatment for you.
