Calcium score (Agatston) - risk level for significant coronary artery disease (CAD)

Coronary calcium score is an independent predictor of risk of significant coronary artery disease. It may refine overall risk of coronary artery disease estimated with conventional risk factors. It is based on CT examination and calculation of the Agatston score from the images.
