- •Coronary Artery Calcium (CAC), a direct marker of coronary atherosclerosis, is an important risk stratification tool.
- •Almost no data are available on the determinants of CAC among very young adults <30 years.
- •These findings reinforce the importance of traditional risk factors in the development of detectable subclinical ASCVD.
