Cardiac scoring is a pain-free, non-invasive and inexpensive proceduring requiring less than 10 minutes. The amount of calcified plaque detected in your coronary arteries is used to establish your coronary calcium score.

Are you a candidate?

Those who would benefit from a cardiac scoring test include:

  • Males over 45 and females over 55
  • Smokers
  • Diabetes patients
  • Family history of stroke or heart disease
  • Overweight by 10 pounds or more
  • High cholesterol or blood pressure patients
  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Anyone concerned about their risk for heart disease

What will I learn from the test?

The score, based on age, gender and other risk factors, is a strong indicator of your risk for coronary artery disease. Your physician can use this information to recommend the appropriate treatment, including diet and lifestyles changes, medication, and/or further testing.

Is it cost-efficient?

The cardiac calcium screening is priced at $69, which includes cardiologist interpretation.
