CT-calciumscore: geschikte test voor uitsluiting

Calcium in atherosclerotische plaques heeft op een CT-scan, net als botweefsel, een wit aspect.2 In 1990 rapporteerden Arthur Agatston en zijn collega’s dat het met CT-techniek mogelijk was om niet alleen de aanwezigheid van calcium, maar ook de hoeveelheid ervan in atherosclerotische plaques in coronairvaten weer te geven. Agatston bedacht een score die gebaseerd was op het tellen van

Coronary Artery Calcium Volume and Density JACC

Briefly, the Agatston score is calculated by multiplying the calcified plaque area of a given lesion within a given CT slice by a calcium density factor (1 to 4) that corresponds to the maximal Hounsfield unit attenuation. Scores for all lesions on all slices through the z-axis of the heart are summed to produce the Agatston score.

CAC Score Reference Values MESA

Arterial age provides a convenient transformation of coronary artery calcium (CAC) from Agatston units to age units, to a scale more easily appreciated by both patients and treating physicians. The arterial age for a participant is the age at which the estimated CHD risk (modeled as a function of age) is the same as that for the observed CAC score.
