Calcium Score CT Scan at Swedish Medical Center
Treat yourself or someone you love to a life-saving Calcium Scoring CT Scan.
If you have any of the following cardiovascular disease risk factors, you may want to consider having a Calcium Scoring CT Scan:
- High blood cholesterol levels
- A family history of heart disease
- High blood pressure
- Cigarette smoking
- Overweight or obese
- Physically inactive
A Calcium Scoring Computed Tomography (CT) Scan is painless, non-invasive and only takes five minutes! It uses a special machine to obtain multiple X-ray images of the heart and its vessels (more detailed than conventional X-rays). The images allow a doctor to determine your Calcium Score, which reflects the degree and extent of calcium deposits or build up in the walls of your coronary arteries, the vessels that supply oxygen-containing blood to the heart.
Swedish offers Calcium Scores all year for $195.
This scan will give you and your physician an idea of whether coronary artery disease is present despite a lack of symptoms, or if it is likely to develop. Together, with your doctor, you can then decide what measures you can take to avoid heart disease.
To schedule an appointment for a Calcium Scoring CT Scan, please call (303) 788-5444.
Please Note: A doctor's referral is required for this screening, and we recommend that you talk to your physician about this screening and share the results with him/her.
