Heart Scan Calcium Score
64-Slice Coronary Calcium Screening Exam (Coronary Calcium Score)
Heart screening is appropriate for men over 35 and women over 40 years. More than 2,600 Americans die of heart disease each day, and one every 33 seconds. Early detection of coronary artery disease enables patients and their physicians to modify risk factors in order to significantly reduce the potential for advanced heart disease. Coronary artery scans detect and measure calcium in the walls of coronary arteries. Calcium is a marker of atherosclerosis and is highly predictive of coronary artery disease.
Patients at higher risk are those with:
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Family history
