A coronary calcium score, using a CT scan, can tell you how much cholesterol plaque is present in your arteries with calcium score. It is especially helpful at picking up early disease before you have any symptoms or signs of heart disease. Giving you the ability to maximize prevention to prevent heart attacks in the future. These cost approximately $100 out pocket.
CT scans can even provide more detailed information using a coronary CT angiogram. This is like a 3D model of your arteries. This can precisely show the exact location and degree of narrowing throughout the coronary arteries. It is essentially doing a cardiac catheterization/coronary angiogram non-invasively using a CT scanner. This costs approximately $900 out of pocket.
