Hello. Thank you for posting.

The coronary arteries are the vessels that supply oxygen-containing blood to the heart. The plaque that may be found in these arteries is a build-up of fat, calcium and other substances that can either narrow or close the arteries. Some symptoms of plaque build-up in these arteries may be chest pain, arm tingle, or back pain.   Cardiac Scoring, which is also known as Heart Scan, or Calcium Score, is a non-invasive CT scan of the heart. It will calculate your risk of developing Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) by measuring the amount of calcified plaque in the coronary arteries. 

We cannot interpret test results. You should speak with your doctor about your results/risk.
