Coronary calcium as a predictor of coronary events in four racial or ethnic groups. The New England journal of medicine. 2008 Mar 27;358(358). 1336-45. PMID: 18367736 [PubMed]
In white populations, computed tomographic measurements of coronary-artery calcium predict coronary heart disease independently of traditional coronary risk factors. However, it is not known whether coronary-artery calcium predicts coronary heart disease in other racial or ethnic groups.
