Coronary Calcium Helps Stratify 10-Year Cardiac Risk in Diabetes

Coronary artery calcium (CAC) scores may be better at predicting the risk of a cardiovascular disease (CVD) event in patients with type 2 diabetes than traditional scores such as Framingham, even in those who've had diabetes for 10 years, researchers report[1].

This conclusion is based on a new analysis of participants in the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA) published online in JAMA Cardiology by Dr Shaista Malik (University of California, Irvine) and colleagues.
