Calcium Score May Not Be Enough


Calcium Score, Real Time Results, and Consultation 


Calcium is the end-stage of atherosclerosis of the arteries of the heart (coronary arteries). Prior to formation of calcifications, fatty and fibrous plaque is often present. This fatty and fibrous plaque cannot be seen on a calcium score CT. Patients with a high calcium score of 600 may have narrowed or widely open arteries. A Coronary CT Angiogram with contrast is needed to see inside the arteries of the heart.
