Calcium Scoring

Each year, more than 500,000 Americans die from some form of heart disease and more than half will have had no previous symptoms.

But 85 percent of all heart disease can be stopped or prevented if conditions that lead to heart attacks are diagnosed soon enough. One tool to assess your heart health is Calcium Scoring.

Calcium Scoring measures the amount of calcified plaque, if any, in the arteries that supply blood to the heart. Calcified plaque in the arteries is one of the major risk factors of coronary artery disease.

The Calcium Scoring test is simple, reliable, painless and non-invasive. It also only takes 15 minutes. Best of all, if there's a problem, you can find out now.
