Oklahoma Heart Hosptial HeartView CT, also called a calcium-score screening or heart scan, is a non-invasive way of obtaining information about the presence, location and extent of calcified plaque in the coronary arteries. This test can uncover potential heart disease years before you have symptoms and help evaluate whether you are at an increased risk for heart disease. The test is fast and painless and takes less than ten minutes to perform. You do not need a physician’s order nor do you need to change your clothes. At the end of your scan, you will receive a preliminary calcium score total. The exam will be interpreted by an Oklahoma Heart Hospital cardiologist and your final results will be passed along in a timely manner.
