Hi everyone,

Newbie here. Just looking into the tests I need to establish baselines and a CT Heart Scan was one of those suggested. So I’ve been looking into it (I live in Australia) and some mention a need for contrast to be injected? Is this accurate? I’m not able to have contrast. If I can’t have a CT Heart Scan without contrast is their an alternative?

Thanks in advance for your help.

There is a version that uses dye but the procedure recommended heavily on this website is a CAC to obtain a calcium score and uses NO dye, takes about 5 min and is very much non invasive except for the small amount of radiation from the scanner.

Brilliant! I knew I had to avoid the up selling but didn’t know what the basic CAC involved. Thank you everyone for your help :)))
