Utah Weekly Forum with Rebecca Cressman

Your Heart Health & Coronary Calcium Score

There is a special CT scan that can now detect calcium deposits in the coronary arteries. That means those with a risk for heart disease, can now get a Calcium Score and a clearer picture of how plaque is affecting their heart. In this episode of Utah Weekly Forum, Intermountain Healthcare Heart Institute’s Cardiology Physician Assistant and Researcher, Viet Le, joins FM100.3 Rebecca Cressman. Le explains who might need a calcium score and how the score helps both clinicians and patients better decide what therapy will be best for their heart health.
