In this article we present a summary of the current status and clinical implications of the association of breast artery calcification (BAC) with coronary
artery calcium scoring (CACS). We briefly introduce the epidemiology of cardiovascular disease in women, explore the role of coronary artery
calcium scoring in cardiovascular risk stratification and further discuss the findings and limitations that exist in various studies that have been carried
out thus far on this topic.
