A calcium score test is used to detect calcium deposits found in atherosclerotic plaque in the coronary arteries. More coronary calcium means more coronary atherosclerosis, suggesting a greater likelihood of significant narrowing somewhere in the coronary system and a higher risk of future cardiovascular events.
Your doctor uses the calcium-score screening heart scan to evaluate risk for future coronary artery disease. Those at increased risk include individuals with the following traits:
- Family or personal history of coronary artery disease
- Male over 45 years of age or female over 55 years of age
- Past or present smoker
- History of high cholesterol, diabetes or high blood pressure
- Inactive lifestyle
