What to expect before Coronary Calcium Scan

No special preparation is needed for a coronary calcium scan. Your doctor may ask you to avoid caffeine and smoking for 4 hours before the test.


For the scan, you'll remove your clothes above the waist and wear a hospital gown. You also will remove any jewelry from around your neck or chest.
