Abstract

OBJECTIVE - It is unclear whether coronary artery calcium (CAC) is effective for risk stratifying patients with diabetes in whom treatment decisions are uncertain. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS - Of 44,052 asymptomatic individuals referred for CAC testing, we studied 2,384 individuals with diabetes. Subjects were followed for amean of 5.6 6 2.6 years for the end point of all-cause mortality. RESULTS - There were 162 deaths (6.8%) in the population. CAC was a strong predictor of mortality across age-groups (age
