What does this coronary calcium score test report indicate?
Only a mild progression of coronary calcium score
Welcome back on HCM!
I understand your concern and would like to explain that your coronary calcium score is considered mild, just switching to a moderate degree (101 - 400); with a high likelihood of mild atherosclerotic coronary plaque presence.
Nevertheless, you shouldn't worry too much about, as this test has only approximate predictive value based on probabilities and can't determine precisely whether a coronary plaque with an exact resulting stenosis is present or not.
But, the higher a coronary calcium score, the most likely a coronary stenosis presence appears.
Considering you are a healthy active individual, completely asymptomatic, I would recommend following your healthy life-style and performing periodic medical checkups including any provocative cardiac tests like:
- a standard exercise cardiac stress test,
- cardiac stress echo with contrast enhancement,
- nuclear perfusional cardiac stress test
which could better delineate the presence of provoked myocardial ischemia and guide you through further diagnostic steps if necessary.
Hope you will find this answer helpful!
