Cardiac Calcification Scoring / Auswertung / Bewertung der Verkalkung der Herzkranzarterien
Explanation:
According to this website, this is it:

Wie funktioniert Cardiac Calcification Scoring?
Die ultraschnelle Mehrfachdetektor-Spiral-Computertomographie ermöglicht die Darstellung von Herzkranzgefäßverkalkungen am bewegten Herzen. Ein spezielles Auswertungsprogramm errechnet einen individuellen Wert (Score) für die wichtigsten Herzkranzarterien, der einen Anhalt für das persönliche Risiko einer späteren Herzerkrankung gibt (siehe Tabelle).
Die Untersuchung erfordert keine eingreifende Maßnahme oder Kontrastmittelgabe; sie erfolgt absolut schmerzfrei und dauert wenige Sekunden. Eine besondere Vorbereitung ist nicht erforderlich. Die stark reduzierte Strahlendosis qualifiziert das Verfahren zur Vorsorgeuntersuchung.

The presence of calcium in the coronary arteries is one of the strongest indicators that early heart disease is present, and that further action is needed. Now, there is a simple and safe test that you can receive to determine your level of risk for heart disease. The Multi-Detector CT Cardiac Scoring Test is performed using a high speed, high-resolution CT scanner. The amount of calcium in each of the main coronary arteries is "scored" on the computer. Adding these individual scores together gives you your total score. The higher the total score, the greater the risk of having coronary artery disease.
The test takes only a few minutes and it is noninvasive, which means that it does not require surgery, injections, or other special preparation, such as fasting or running on a treadmill. To date, cardiac scoring is a self-pay exam, with a total charge of $390.
