This test is a non-invasive way for our cardiologists to assess your heart for coronary artery disease. It provides detailed information and pictures of your heart's arteries. During the scan, your doctor will look for calcium deposits in the coronary arteries. This excess of calcium can cause the arteries to narrow, therefore increasing the risk of a heart attack. The result of this test is your coronary calcium score. A CT calcium heart scan can provide a first indication that you may be at a higher risk of having a heart attack, even before you show any symptoms. Detecting a build-up of calcium early means that modern treatments and lifestyle changes can make all the difference and help you avoid a future heart attack and other forms of vascular disease, such as stroke. Coronary artery disease is a leading cause of heart attacks. Coronary artery disease occurs when plaques build up within the walls of your arteries causing them to narrow (atherosclerosis). The plaques are deposits in the artery walls made of fat, cholesterol, and calcium and it’s the calcium in these plaques that can be detected by the use of a CT calcium heart scan. You may also be interested in our health screening or if you wish to see a specialist, we have private consultant cardiologists available for appointments.
