At the annual meeting of the American College of Cardiology a debate was held looking at how coronary artery calcium (CAC) should affect patient care.

Speaking on one side of the debate was Jennifer G. Robinson, MD, MPH, from the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine who argued that patients with a CAC of 0 should be started on statin treatment. Robinson said with plaque and calcium both being factors to consider in the prevention of cardiac events in the future CAC is just one thing to consider when looking at the overall care picture.
