Cardiac Calcium Score Screening

This 10-minute non-invasive computerized tomography (CT) study detects deposits of plaque in the walls of the heart. These deposits are an early sign of heart disease and can identify if a person is at increased risk for heart attack.

Those at increased risk include individuals with the following factors:

  • Men > 45 years of age or women > 55 years of age
  • Family history of coronary artery disease
  • History of smoking or current smoker
  • High blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes
  • Overweight
  • Inactive lifestyle

The results of this non invasive test can contribute valuable information towards your cardiac diagnosis and future plan of care.

Fee: $129
The Calcium Score test is currently not covered by most insurance companies and is therefore a self pay test. The test can be ordered by any physician using the CTA Order Form or the Non-Invasive Cardiovascular Department Order Sheet.


Talk to your Doctor to obtain an order for this screening test and then call 610-431-5131 to schedule your Calcium Score Screening.
