Test description

The Calcium Score is a test used to detect calcium deposits found in atherosclerotic plaque in the coronary arteries. More advanced methods allow more accurate CT to detect coronary artery calcification in atherosclerosis, before symptoms develop approximations.

In Creu Blanca have the latest and most advanced CT, the Aquilion Vision scanner is able to visualize cardiac calcification with a single set of images, which means to obtain information faster than previous scanners so much.

More coronary calcium means more coronary atherosclerosis, indicating an increased likelihood of collapsing a part of the coronary system and hence an increased risk of future cardiovascular problems.
