The coronary calcium score test is an excellent screening tool for heart disease.
The calcium score number closely correlates to the likelihood of having heart disease: mild, moderate or severe.
It also closely correlates to the likelihood of having a cardiac event in the next several years.
Most people have never undergone a calcium score test. Many don’t even know what this is.
Others think it’s too expensive, but the test can run between around $200 and $300–well worth it.
It takes only about five minutes, too. If you know that your calcium score correlates to mild heart disease, you can take measures to prevent a progression.
Don’t be in the dark about what’s going on inside your coronary arteries, like so many people are, and then one day they drop from a heart attack–that probably could have been prevented.
