PMID:  8752196     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Coronary artery calcium detected by digital fluoroscopy is closely associated with known risk factors of coronary artery disease in asymptomatic low-risk populations. Even in the absence of significant luminal narrowing, this may not be an innocent finding, and subjects with coronary calcium may be at greater risk for developing obstruction and clinical disease.
