I had a ct cardiac calcium test. Is a score of 111 on the left anterior descending artery high?

Hi Anonymous,
Thanks for your question. I was able to find the following information on the test you had done. It shows that 111 generally indicates moderate risk for coronary artery disease in the next 2-10 years based on the amount of calcium that was found. However, your team of doctors will be able to go over these results particular to your case and make recommendations for your continued care, including developing a nutrition and exercise program to help you avoid a heart attack. When are you supposed to be meeting with your doctor next?
Here is the link to the page where I found the results chart (toward the bottom of the page): http://www.radiologyinfo.org/en/info.cfm?pg=ct_calscoring
Good luck, and please let us know how you're doing.
