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.
