Prevention of Vascular Calcification by Magnesium and abstract 11552breast arterial calcification and risk of Painting
Arterial vascular calcification (VC) represents formation of calcium phosphate deposits on the interior of arteries, which could restrict blood flow leading to heart health problems, including morbidity and mortality. VC is a complex and tightly regulated process that involves transformation of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) to bone-like cells and subsequent deposition of calcium as hydroxyapatite.

Coronary artery calcium (CAC) was quantified using the Agatston method. Results: Total plaque increased in 48% of patients, and progression was predicted by older age, higher cumulative inflammation, and total prednisone dose (P < 0.05). CAC progressors were older, more abstract 11552breast arterial calcification and risk of PaintingHow to calculate the CAC score for a calcified lesion?To calculate a CAC score, the original Agatston method involved defining a calcified lesion as a density 130 Hounsfield units and an area 3 pixels. A score was assigned to each lesion (the product of density and area), and the total score was reached by adding up each of the calcified lesion scores.See all results for this question
How is calcification used to diagnose unstable plaques?
Many imaging modalities have proposed spotty calcification to be a predictor of unstable plaque and have suggested more extensive calcification to be associated with stable plaques and perhaps the use of statin therapy.See all results for this questionHow does helical non contrast enhanced CT show calcification?Helical noncontrast-enhanced CT reveals calcification involving the left main coronary artery.

Coronary heart disease is the most common cause of death and causes approximately one of every six deaths in the United States (1,2). Primary prevention of cardiovascular disease is typically based on risk-scoring methods such as the Framingham risk score.
