Cardiac Score – the Numbers Count for Your Health

A person’s cardiac score is a key indicator of whether or not they are at risk for heart disease, which includes blocked arteries, or plaque deposits that can weaken the arterial walls.  This cardiac score is also called a “Heart Scan,” and measures calcium that is found in the plaque that may form on the artery walls. This plaque begins to narrow or weaken the artery passages as it increases, restricting the flow of blood to the heart, and making that artery vulnerable for rupture.  The presence of calcium in the arteries is a significant marker for coronary artery disease or CAD.
