Cardiac Calcium Scoring

Tanner Heart Care has powerful tools that help doctors diagnose heart disease before you have a cardiac event. One of these tools is a procedure called a cardiac CT calcium score scan.


How the score works

When you have calcification in your arteries — known as atherosclerosis or coronary artery disease (CAD) — it narrows the arteries that supply oxygen-rich blood to your heart. This puts you at risk for a heart attack.

Cardiac CT calcium scoring, also called coronary calcium scoring, relies on computed tomography (a CT or CAT scan), which uses X-rays and a powerful computer to scan and generate clear images of your bones, internal organs, soft tissue and blood vessels. A coronary CT calcium scoring scan allows your doctor to see if you have calcification in your coronary arteries and, if so, how much.

Understanding your score

A negative cardiac calcium score means you do not have calcification. A positive score means you may need more diagnostic tests or interventions to prevent a potentially serious heart attack or heart disease.
