Sponsored - Heart calcium scoring is a simple and powerful way to spot the early stages of heart disease. For only $49.95, this simple, potentially life-saving test detects plaque build-up long before symptoms appear.
The heart scan detects calcium deposits which can narrow arteries and increase the risk of a heart attack. A calcium score is calculated based on the amount of plaque detected in the scan. The lower the calcium score the less likely a cardiac event will happen.
In general, men over 30 or woman over 40, along with those with risk factors benefit from this test.
