Calcium Scoring is a quick, non-invasive test that measures the amount of calcified plaque in the arteries that supply blood to the heart.
The buildup of plaque in the arteries causes their inner walls to narrow, restricting normal blood flow and potentially causing heart attacks and strokes.
The plaque usually becomes calcified over time. Once calcified, it can be detected and the amount measured non-invasively using a CT Scanner, which produces about 200 images of your heart.
