) is used to detect

calcium deposits

(blockages) in the coronary arteries that supply blood to the heart. A multidetector CT (


) takes multiple rapid scans that can show issues in the heart’s structure and pumping function.

Contrast dye

is injected into a vein prior to the test to help highlight the blood vessels to create a clearer picture. The contrast dye may affect patients with pre existing kidney conditions; a

cardiac MRI

may be performed instead. A


conducts CT scans with findings sent to the patient’s
