Coronary Artery Calcium Score CT

A calcium score test can help make treatment decisions for people who are at borderline risk of heart disease. This test is useful if you are between the ages of 40 and 70, have an increased risk of heart disease, but do not have any symptoms. The test can help determine the amount of calcium deposits in your heart arteries, which can help predict your risk of a future heart attack. Based on the results, your doctor can recommend appropriate treatment options.

Individuals at risk include anyone with:

  • A family history of heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • Smoking addiction
  • High blood pressure
  • Extra pounds (overweight)
  • Diabetes or chronic kidney disease

What is Calcium Scoring?

It’s a measurement of the amount of calcium in the walls of the arteries of the heart. 

Our state-of-the-art Spiral CT gives more details on possible cancerous growths in any organ or for testing in cases of head injuries, abdominal illnesses as well as chronic back problems. Our Spiral CT has an advanced software that obtains three-dimensional images for a more detailed study (bone fractures in patients with severe trauma). Unlike conventional CT scans, our Spiral CT allows for faster movement through the process thereby, reducing radiation for the patient.

Our mammogram equipment provides comfortable and customized screening for breast cancer. We have recently added an additional feature, the X-Ray Guided Mammographic Breast Biopsy, which is used to conduct a biopsy after having done a mammogram that has detected an unknown abnormality.

Here at Belize Medical Associates expectant mothers also have the opportunity to view their baby’s movements and see their baby’s features before being born through our 4D Ultrasound. The ultrasound can also determine abnormalities of the baby all while inside the womb.

 

Our Radiology Department continues to offer Belizeans and visitors professional x-ray services. Conventional x-rays such as those for the Head, Thorax, Abdomen, Pelvis, Spine and Extremities as well as special x-rays such as contrasted studies of the Genito-Urinary and Gastrointestinal Tract are all available at Belize Medical Associates.
