Cardiac CT Calcium Scoring

A cardiac CT (computed tomography) scan for coronary calcium provides information about the presence, location and extent of calcified plaque in the coronary arteries—the vessels that supply oxygen-containing blood to the heart muscle.

The goal of a cardiac CT scan for calcium scoring is to determine if coronary artery disease (CAD) is present and to what extent, even if there are no symptoms. Your physician may recommend this non-invasive screening study if you have risk factors but no clinical symptoms of CAD. The low dose CT scan takes 10-15 minutes and requires a physician’s order.

CT calcium scoring is not usually covered by insurance but is available at Winchester Medical Center, Warren Memorial Hospital and Shenandoah Memorial Hospital for $99.
