What is Coronary Calcium actually?


I have encountered a form where a collected item is “Coronary Calcium Score”. I searched but could not find a LOINC code. Are there any suggestions?

You can find information about coronary calcium here: http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/health/health-topics/topics/cscan/

I agree that it doesn’t appear LOINC has an existing code for reporting the calcium (or Agatston) score. You can send a formal submission to submissions@loinc.org. See http://loinc.org/submissions for more information.
