The CT Coronary Artery Calcium Score. This simple non-invasive CT scan measures the amount of plaque in the coronary arteries. Your coronary arteries are the blood vessels that supply oxygen-rich blood to the heart. Unfortunately, sometimes this plaque, made up of fat, calcium and other yucky substances can build up in these arteries and narrow or close them.

Because of how this specifically measures the current build-up of plaque this is a better predictor of heart disease than your typical cholesterol or other risk assessments.
