Got Plaque? Access your risk for heart attack or stroke with Calcium Scoring
Coronary artery calcium (CAC) scoring, also called a coronary calcium scan, is a test that measures the amount of calcium in the walls of the heart’s arteries. Your test score can help determine your future risk of having a heart attack or stroke.
Early detection of atherosclerosis, the buildup of plaque in and on artery walls, could save lives. Plaque that builds up in blood vessels can eventually burst and cause blood clots, leading to a heart attack or stroke. The greater the coronary calcium score, the larger the amount of plaque is in the artery wall, and the greater the risk of a heart attack. The calcium score is thus a good predictor of a heart attack, giving your doctor valuable information to factor into your plan of care.
Every person with a moderate risk of heart disease can benefit from a heart CT scan.
