This screening procedure is used to detect calcium in your blood, which may indicate the presence of plaque on the walls of your arteries, a precursor to coronary artery disease. With early detection, your doctor may be able to treat your condition and improve your health.

Overview

A coronary calcium scan results in a score that indicates whether you're at risk for a heart attack or other heart problems before other signs and symptoms occur. Your cardiologist may be able to lower your risk by recommending diet and lifestyle changes.
