St. Anthony Summit Medical Center now offers Coronary Artery Calcium Scoring.
Now you and your doctor can have a clearer view of your cardiac risk. The coronary artery calcium CAT scans check for the buildup of calcified plaque in the walls of the coronary arteries helping identify blockages that could lead to heart attacks.
Plaque in the arteries of your heart can restrict or block the flow of blood to the muscles of the heart. The measurement of calcified plaque with coronary artery calcium scoring may enable your doctor to identify possible coronary artery disease before you have signs or symptoms.
The radiology department is now providing coronary artery calcium scoring tests at a self-pay price of $99 for the scan and a $68 reading fee. The radiologist’s analysis will be shared with the referring physician, so patients can understand their cardiac risk and make lifestyle choices that best address their healthcare goals.
