Abstract

Background: We evaluated the predictive value of traditional Framingham Risk Score (FRS) for subclinical coronary plaque detected by computed tomography coronary angiogram (CTCA) in asymptomatic patients with zero to low coronary artery calcium (CAC) scores. Methods: We assessed 167 asymptomatic Taiwanese patients (mean age, 57±11.2 years) who underwent CTCA as part of a health check-up evaluation, and examined the association between FRS, serum biomarkers, and coronary plaque assessed by CTCA. Results: Of 127 patients with CAC scores between
