In brief: Reason?

More information need to answer the why? If you are having symptoms this may be done with contrast as part of a cardiac ct angiography study.
If asymptomatic this may be a coronary calcium screening test to determine presence and amount of cad. Both are highly useful non-invasive tests but provide different information.
