Dr. Roger Blumenthal describes a comprehensive approach to CVD risk assessment including the use of Coronary Artery Calcium measurement to help refine risk estimates.
Upon completion of this activity, participants will be able to:
- Review both traditional and novel methods to predict future CVD.
- Describe how the estimation of lifetime risk and risk-adjusted age impact health behavior change and adherence to therapy.
