Oct 2, 2018 · very high calcium score. in Heart & Blood Health

Oct 1, 2018 · very high calcium score. in Heart & Blood Health

I'm 54 and recently got a calcium score of 1525, which scared me (my dad died of a heart attack at 58). Cardiologist doubled my statin dose and scheduled a stress test. The stress test is normal with a Duke treadmill score of 10 and and the left ventricular ejection fraction is 74%. I'm told this is all great. But how do I reconcile the bad CTC score with the good stress test score? Thoughts?
