My cardiologist doesn't seem that impressed with calcium scoring. He read the radiologist's report of "Moderate" and seemed to skip over the fact that I was in the 100th percentile, and instead talked to me about how much radiation was involved in this test. Radiation? OK, but what about that score? If it's almost all in one spot, shouldn't other tests be done? Our family has a history of high cholesterol and high lp(a). I'm LDL 150, HDL 90, Lp(a)150.
