Abstract

The paper emphasizes on identifying and analyzing Coronary Artery Calcium (CAC) score or Calcium Score metric to predict early cardiovascular health issues. There is a rapid increase of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) or health issues day by day. The major concern is that medical practitioners and clinicians are consulted only when health issues get worse or can’t be forwarded to further cure or improvement. Calcium Score metric is a good indicator for predicting the risk of CVD and Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) or Heart Attack. It is heart’s non-invasive CT scan. Right form birth, calcium deposition is initiated gradually in the coronary arteries. Calcium Score keeps track and measures the amount of calcium deposition or calcified plaque in arteries. Therefore, it has salient role to predict and assess the risk of development of Coronary Artery Disease (CAD). Keeping track of calcium score of an individual, can make aware of getting into the risk of CVD. The probability of occurrence of CVD depends on the calcium score. Lesser calcium score and percentile rank indicates lesser probability of a heart disease, cardiovascular health issues or heart attack. Therefore, there must be awareness and proper follow-up towards the calcium score in order to avoid CAD in future.
