Do you have any information on EBCT or MRI for coronary disease?

Asked by JLeslie (61643points) November 18th, 2019 from iPhone

I was reading on another Q about Trump having an EBCT at his physical exam, and it got me wondering again about getting it done. My mom had it done about 10 or 15 years ago, she was full of calcium in her arteries. I worry about this myself considering how low my vitamin D was for years, and my genes. It would be awesome to find out my arteries aren’t full of calcium.

I hate getting X-rays, because of the radiation, so I was trying to research MRI instead of CT. I know we have a jelly who knows all about there tools, I can’t remember his name.

I don’t personally know any non-military people who have had an EBCT, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it isn’t done, I just haven’t heard about it from people maybe. My guess is insurance hasn’t decided to cover it if it’s not being done. Just a guess. Insurance would be even less likely to cover an MRI.

Any information you have is appreciated.
