Coronary artery calcification is a marker for atherosclerotic disease. The calcifications frequently occur early in the disease process and often before the development of luminal narrowing or cardiac events. Electron beam CT has a high accuracy in detecting calcifications, and thus has prognostic value in predicting luminal narrowing and future cardiac events.
