A coronary calcium score is a test for people at risk for heart disease who do not have symptoms. The test uses computed tomography (CT) to check for calcium build-up in the walls of the coronary arteries. The coronary arteries wrap around the heart and supply it with blood and oxygen. Calcium in these arteries is a sign of heart disease. Find more information on a coronary calcium score screening »
The "Living for Zachary Heart Screening" is a special program created for youth ages 12-22 that can help detect heart abnormalities that may lead to sudden cardiac arrest - a condition in which the heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating.
