No, it’s a CT scan of your coronary arteries.

Hi, I pray your tests go well! I just found out 5 weeks ago that my score was 2267. If you didn’t have anxiety before you sure do now and I can relate completely. I had a nuclear stress test a couple weeks ago and I passed with no blockages seen. Hopefully you will pass also then it comes down to slowing the progression. I have been watching a lot of Dr. Ford Brewer’s videos trying to educate myself more. Still don’t understand why they say if your score is over 400 you have a significant chance to have blockages, but most people who have these nuclear tests pass?? Anyway, just wanted to let you know you have someone pulling for you in Wisconsin. Good luck and keep us posted so that we can all learn from each other. Phillip

You sound like me I also have a little low Hdl. What Statin are you on and how much? Thanks for your post it means a lot. The Nuclear imaging can only detect blockage if over 70% ?? That’s not too reassuring.

Thank you lioness. I hope I don’t need bypass surgery but if I do, just wondered if I should have it done locally or go to a big place like Mayo?

I have a calcium score of 2267 with no symptoms . Had a nuclear stress test yesterday. The treadmill test I believe went fine but have not heard back from the Dr. about the imaging. Still stressed but hoping imaging went well as maybe they would have called me by now? Anxiously waiting.
