Abstract
Background: Atherosclerosis of the coronary artery is related to the obstructive coronary artery disease. The coronary artery calcium score test is a non-invasive and useful indicator of atherosclerosis. The Framingham risk scoring system is a traditional indicator of the cardiovascular risk. This cross-sectional study was performed to evaluate the relation of the coronary artery calcium scores with Framingham risk scores. Methods: We evaluated 135 patients who visited the Department of Family Medicine in Severance Hospital and had a test of the coronary artery calcium scores from January 5th, 2005, to August 12th, 2006. The Framingham risk scores were calculated. We analyzed the correlation between the coronary artery calcium scores and the Framingham risk scores and tested the difference between the groups divided by categorization of the calcium scores. Results: The coronary artery calcium scores were significantly correlated with the Framingham risk scores (r=0.282, P<0.01). There was a significant correlation in case of women (r=0.349, P<0.01), but not in case of men. There was a significant difference between the group whose calcium score was 0 and the group whose calcium scores were above 0 (P<0.001). Conclusion: There was a positive correlation between the coronary artery calcium scores and the Framingham risk scores. The coronary artery calcium score seems to be a significant factor to assess the cardiovascular risk.
