More than half the people who die suddenly from a heart attack have no previous symptoms. Low-dose cardiac CTs for calcium scoring are designed for people who have not been diagnosed with heart disease. Because calcifications are an early sign of CAD, these scans can show whether you’re at risk for a heart attack or other heart problems before other signs and symptoms occur. Low-dose cardiac CTs for calcium scoring are 99 percent effective in confirming or ruling out coronary artery disease.
What is low-dose cardiac score?
Low-dose cardiac scoring is a quick, painless, non-invasive procedure performed with our state-of-the-art low-dose CT scanner. Low-dose means you no longer have to worry about the harmful effects of radiation. During this 30-second test, Putnam County Radiology will accurately determine the degree and severity of hard plaque within the coronary arteries.
