Coronary Calcium Score Scans recommended for high Activity Individuals

Lavie and colleagues additionally recommended CT CAC testing for high-activity individuals with an intermediate risk of heart disease, followed by more intense lipid intervention and other preventive therapies for those found to have a score of at least 100 AU or be in the 75th percentile for their age group.

“[CT] CAC testing appears to retain its utility in high-volume exercisers, and along with cardiorespiratory fitness is a very important predictor associated with survival,” they wrote.
