Coronary calcium scan
A heart scan uses a specialized X-ray technology called multidetector row or multislice computerized tomography (CT), which creates multiple images of the calcium deposits. The amount of detected calcium provides a measure of how much plaque has accumulated, and the data from the scan are used to calculate a score. When combined with other health information, doctor may use the test score to refine a treatment plan for reducing the risk.
Cardiology research Journals like Clinical Cardiology and Cardiovascular Medicine (CCCM) provides a global open access platform to put forth the ongoing research, reviews articles related to all heart related disease, its treatment, case reports and many more.
