CT Calcium Score Heart Scan

A CT Calcium score heart scan shows a clear picture of the heart to help detect and measure calcium deposits and plaques in the the arteries of your heart.  The level of calcium deposit seen can be an indicator for potential development of heart disease or heart attack in the future.
Risk Factors include: Diabetes, Smoking, High Blood pressure, High Cholesterol, Family history of heart disease.

Calcium plaques develop gradually and slowly over time  before any signs of heart disease is diagnosed.
These deposits can restrict the flow of oxygenated rich blood to the muscle of the heart.  Common symptoms which may indicate this include chest pain, pressure when walking, angina which can potentially increasing the risk of heart attack.

Calcium score is also an indicator for potential development of heart disease in the future.
As with any scan, a CT Calcium score scan does use ionizing radiation.  However, the level of radiation are relatively low and would equate to approximately 1 year of radiation that you would be exposed to from background radiation.
Your scan report will provide a specific Calcium Score.  This is the total amount of calcium deposits around the heart and the density of the calcium deposits.
The calcium score is normally categorised as No Calcium Deposit, Low Risk, Mild Calcium Deposit, Moderate, or High Risk.
