Here it is, the calculator.
If your risk is below 10% calcium score testing is not indicated in the first place.
Sangoma, is this basically saying that in this low risk pop., statins are not helpful? How is "low risk" defined? At 58 y.o., lifelong recreational exerciser, 110/70 BP, 50 RHR, cholesterol all in range, I had a TIA about 2 weeks ago. (Brief episodes of aphasia and slight face droop on rt. side). TPA was administered and symptoms fully resolved quickly. Admitted to hospital for 2 days of testing. Brain MRI, CT scans w/ contrast & w/o, TEE, etc. All negative. No AFib in 3 days of monitoring, but having a Loop Recorder installed for ongoing recording. I am told that in 30% of cases, no cause is found. I have been healthy all my life, never on a med. Now I'm on aspirin and Lipitor has been Rx'd, but I have not started and don't want to.
