Calcium Scoring 

Assessing your risk of heart disease

We provide a variety of diagnostic procedures to assess your risk of developing heart disease.  The calcium scoring test is one of these procedures and the Medical Center is the first in Brooklyn to offer it.  The test detects the amount of calcium plaque or hardening in the coronary arteries.  The results of this test help a physician determine whether further testing is necessary.  The test takes less than 15 minutes and a referral from your primary care physician is necessary.  To find out if this test is appropriate for you and the cost for it, please call 718 283-8902 for more information.  

If you are a patient undergoing diagnostic testing in our labs, please be assured that our staff is committed to communicating with your private physician and informing them of test results so that therapeutic options can be discussed with you as soon as possible.
