Arterial Age Calculator

The arterial calculator helps you calculate the arterial age. It allows you to convert coronary artery calcium (CAC) from Agatston units to age units.

Enter your calcium score and age to find out the approximate age of your arteries.

The arterial ages of the participants correspond to the ages at which their observed CAC score aligns with their predicted CHD risk (based on age). This relationship establishes a meaningful connection between the two variables and provides valuable insights into their cardiovascular health.

The likelihood of calcium in the coronary arteries increases as the arteries age. This version of the CAC score simplifies comprehension. For example, if you are 55 years old, your arteries might resemble those of a person who is 65 years old.
