Abstract

Few recent topics in cardiovascular medicine have engendered as much debate as the now vexed issue of high resolution CT scanning of the coronary arteries for calcium, as a predictor of coronary disease risk. As presymptomatic detection of atherosclerosis is a vital and still unsolved problem in clinical practice, open discussion about this topic is very important. It is equally important, however, that clinical practitioners have a clear idea of the 'state of the art', in order to help guide management of individual patients.
