Progression of coronary artery calcium and risk of first myocardial infarction in patients receiving cholesterol-lowering therapy.

Arterioscler. Thromb. Vasc. Biol. 2004 Jul;24(7):1272-7.
PubMed Citation Journal Link

Continued expansion of CAC may indicate failure of some patients to benefit from statin therapy and an increased risk of having cardiovascular events.
