Unfortunately the: CALCIUM SCORE on your CT scan does NOT measure your cardiac function nor the functional sttaus of your coronary areteries. I do not see an age along with your questions. I would therefore have to defer your question to the physician who ordered your CT scan Sorry but hope this helps! Dr Z
