BACKGROUND Coronary artery calcium identified by electron beam computed tomography (EBCT) has potential for noninvasive localization of coronary atherosclerotic disease. However, the effect of a patient's sex on its diagnostic capability has not been examined in a clinical population. METHODS AND RESULTS Fifty women and 89 men had EBCT scans done an average of 1 day after coronary arteriography. Maximum arteriographic percent luminal diameter stenosis of any artery was paired with the total… CONTINUE READING
