CT Calcium Score
CT calcium score measures the amount of calcified plaque in the arteries. It’s a quick, non-invasive test that takes around 15 minutes. Based on the result, we are able to estimate your risk of heart attack/stroke. Understanding your risk of having a heart attack or stroke is the first step in lowering your risk. Together with your doctor, you can then take steps to lower your risk
CT Calcium score:
One fifth of Australians aged 45-74 years have a high chance of having a heart attack or stroke in the next five years. If you are over 45 years, you can have a regular heart health check with your GP. They will check your cholesterol, blood glucose levels and blood pressure, and if appropriate, may refer you for a CT calcium score
