Cardiac calcium scoring uses a special X-ray called a computed tomography scan (CT scan) to detect the buildup of calcium on the walls of the arteries of the heart. Because calcium in the coronary arteries is an indication of possible coronary artery disease, this test can identify heart disease in its early stages and help determine its severity.
