Abstract

We present data for 18,785 patients undergoing electron beam computed tomography, dividing them by sex and age (using 5-year age increments) to determine coronary artery calcium scores representing the 50th and 75th percentiles for each group. Because risk stratification is an integral part of determining therapies for coronary artery disease, age- and sex-based scores may be more clinically useful than total coronary artery calcium scores alone.
