Cardiac Calcium Scoring
Calcium Scoring is a non-invasive study of the arteries in your heart. It does not require an order from your physician.
Preparing for Your Test
There are no special prep instructions for this test.
What to Expect
Please allow 30 minutes for the entire process, as emergency room patients will take priority.
Because it is a screening examination, cardiac calcium scoring is not covered under most insurance companies or Medicare. Payment is due at the time of service. The cost of the exam is $99, and we accept cash, check, or credit card. We will not bill your insurance.
The price includes both the scan and the review and reporting of the results by the cardiologist.
The results of your exam will be interpreted by a cardiologist and a written report will be mailed to your home.
This test is performed at OSF St. Joseph Medical Center from Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Please enter through the Main Entrance (Entrance A). Appointments are not necessary, but you may pre-register by calling (309) 661-5170.
