Calcium scoring, also called a heart CT scan, is a painless, non-invasive way of obtaining information about your coronary arteries. This screening provides pictures of your heart's arteries and identifies if calcium deposits are present – which helps determine if you have a higher risk of having a heart attack or other potential symptoms of heart disease.
Who Should Have a Heart CT?
A heart CT for calcium scoring should be considered if you:
- Are at least 35 years old
- Are not currently being treated for heart disease
- Do not have a pacemaker
- Have at least two of these risk factors:
- Family history of heart disease
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol levels
- History of cigarette smoking
- Physical inactivity

How Radiology Services are administered at Logan Regional Medical Center
Patients are transported to the Radiology Department to allow for the completion of their examinations and returned to their room by the Radiology Department's Patient Transporter and/or Radiologic Technologists. Examinations are taken by a Radiologic Technologist and presented for interpretation to the Radiologist. Reports of examinations are forwarded electronically to the patient's physician or health care provider and to the nursing station for placement in the patient's medical record. The Radiology Department is staff 24 hours daily to assure the ability to provide services to patients that are admitted to the facility.
