Cardiac CT for Calcium Scoring

WHAT IS CARDIAC CT FOR CALCIUM SCORING

Cardiac CT (computed tomography) for calcium scoring is an exam that uses X-rays and a computer to generate detailed images of the coronary arteries. The images are then analyzed intensively by another sophisticated computer program to detect and quantify evidence of calcium deposits in the arteries.

If no evidence of calcium deposits is found, the test is considered “a negative exam.”  However, since deposits in the coronary artery may be in the form of soft, noncalcified plaque, the absence of calcified deposits does not rule out coronary artery disease. If calcium deposits are found, a numeric score, which estimates the extent of coronary disease, is assigned. Higher scores indicate an increased risk of heart attack in the coming years.

BENEFITS OF CARDIAC CT FOR CALCIUM SCORING

Cardiac CT for calcium scoring is a fast, painless, noninvasive method of evaluating possible heart attack risk. The exam does not require the injection of contrast material.

ABOUT THE EXAM

The exam is painless, involves no injections and only takes a few minutes to perform.

Patient Compliments

Love coming to the Medford Office.  Quality and efficient service.  No long wait time.


I have used Larchmont over the years.  Everyone is kind and helpful, making many appointments for my mother to accommodate my schedule.  Thank you-everyone is great!

 

I go back and forth between NJ and FL.  I always wait until I'm in NJ for imaging so I can come to Larchmont.


Larchmont client for many years (Sunset Rd., Willingboro)-always very satisfied with staff.

 

This team is so amazing!  Everyone was so kind and I was in and out in no time!

 

Entire staff was very knowledgeable and professional.  Every aspect of my test experience was pleasant.
