Abstract

We developed age- and gender-specific normative tables of calcium volume scores by using data from 12,936 asymptomatic patients who underwent electron beam tomographic scanning and compared the volume with the Agatston scores obtained in the same subjects. The 2 scores increased as the number of atherosclerotic risk factors increased. The volume scores were statistically smaller than the Agatston scores at the upper quartile level.
