Keep the beat and assess your risk for heart disease

Campbell County, Wyoming residents now have access to a new screening test for Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) at Campbell County Health.

It’s called Calcium Scoring, and it’s a quick and painless test that can assess your risk of heart disease. The test uses a CT scan to measure the amount and location of calcification in the arteries of your heart. Calcification happens when there are significant deposits of fat, called plaque, in the arteries. The more plaque, the higher the risk for heart disease. Learn more
