Educational information

AHA 2016 Dr. Maryam Kavousi (Rotterdam, The Netherlands) shares her findings of a study into the use of coronary artery calcification testing in over 7000 low-risk women with Jeanine Roeters-van Lennep (Rotterdam, The Netherlands). Measuring CAC can help risk stratification in this population, but its routine use in clinical practice needs further consideration.

The information and data provided in this program were updated and correct at the time of the program development, but may be subject to change.
