Coronary Artery Calcium Scoring is used as a noninvasive screening test for coronary artery disease.

CT scanning of the chest is performed and special software is used to measure the amount and distribution of coronary arterial calcification. ¬†¬†This “calcium score” is used to determine the risk of a future cardiovascular event.

The calcium score does not directly correlate with narrowing of a specific vessel, but correlates in a more general sense with the overall severity of atherosclerotic disease.

Cardiac CT Angiography and Coronary artery calcium scoring may be performed together.
