Atherosclerosis: Calcium scoring from CT scan of coronaries is adding up radio graphic sum of calcium found. A score of greater than 400 is high so 2100 is extremely high suggesting great amount of atherosclerosis in the coronary arteries. Some studies suggest greater risk of heart related problems with a higher score. I would recommend some close follow up with a cardiologist.

What does a calcium score of 10.6 mean?

Dr. Brian Wosnitzer

Ca score...: Sources may vary but... Calcium score of 1-10 implies minimal identifiable atherosclerotic plaque with a very unlikely risk, less than 10%, of coronary artery disease. Calcium score of 11-100 implies definite, at least mild atherosclerotic plaque formation with a likelihood of mild or minimal coronary artery narrowing.
