CT cardiac calcium score
Your calcium score confirms you have advanced coronary artery disease and atherosclerosis, but doesn't detail whether you have blockages. For that you need either a CTCA or a cardiac catherization depending on your symptoms and the result of a cardiac stress test. There is nothing to indicate a visit to the ER is necessary. Treatment is dependent on what is found, but doesn't necessarily inlude an immediate intervention like a stent or coronary bypass surgery.
Hope this helps,
