Coronary Calcium Scoring

Coronary Calcium Scoring

Coronary calcium scoring is a non-invasive imaging technique used to assess the presence and extent of calcium deposits in the coronary arteries, indicative of atherosclerosis. By quantifying coronary artery calcium (CAC) through computed tomography (CT) scans, clinicians can stratify individuals’ risk for coronary artery disease (CAD) and future cardiovascular events. A higher calcium score correlates with increased risk, prompting targeted interventions like lifestyle changes and medications to mitigate risk factors and prevent adverse cardiac outcomes. However, it’s important to recognize that this method does not provide insight into plaque composition or stability, necessitating additional risk assessment strategies. Book now to schedule your coronary calcium scoring test and take proactive steps towards safeguarding your heart health.
