Using the calcium score alone:

A calcium score 100-400

In this study a 100-400 score was associated with a 4.1% 1 year risk of a heart event (1). So your estimated 10 year risk would be 41%.

Any 10 year risk 20% or higher is considered high risk. According to this study, your risk is significantly high.

Write that number down: 41%.

Because most events happen in the highest percentile groups, we will use your percentile score next.


  1. This study followed 632 patients for 32 months (+/- 7 months) for heart attack or sudden cardiac death. Most events occurred in the highest percentile groups (those with more calcium than others their age).
