The study results provide more evidence of a link between calcium deposits in the heart arteries and heart disease. But researchers say it's too soon to recommend routine calcium scans to screen for heart disease in people without other risk factors.
The results appear in the Sept. 6 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.
