What Does Your Coronary Calcium Score Show?

UF Health Imaging Center – Baymeadows uses an advanced CT scanner to determine your coronary calcium score. When coronary artery plaque hardens, it reduces the size of your arteries and the amount of blood that flows to the heart. The scanner identifies and measures the buildup of calcified plaque in your heart’s arteries that could lead to heart disease or a heart attack.

This simple, painless and noninvasive test can help your doctor diagnose heart disease before you develop worsening symptoms.

Criteria for screening:

  • Family history of heart disease
  • High LDL cholesterol
  • Low HDL cholesterol
  • Men ages 40 or older
  • Overweight
  • Sedentary or high-risk lifestyle
  • Smoker
  • Women ages 40 or older

We accept many insurance plans, or patients have the option to self-pay.
