CT Calcium Scoring Test
In addition to a Heart2Heart screening, Mercy also offers a CT Calcium Scoring test. This is a screening exam for people who do not yet exhibit symptoms of heart disease. This is a quick, non-invasive calcium scoring screening exam; it detects the presence of calcium in the arteries leading to the heart indicating that atherosclerosis, or narrowing of the arteries, has begun. A 64-slice CT (computerized tomography) scanner is used to perform the scan.
The cost of the CT Calcium exam is $99, payable at the time of your scheduled appointment. Checks, VISA and MasterCard are accepted.
Your doctor must order this exam and can do so by calling Central Scheduling at: (319) 861-7778.
