Coronary artery calcification quantification (scoring) has been done with electron beam CT (EBCT), but is now being done with spiral or helical CT. Many radiologists and cardiologists who do not have EBCT but do have access to spiral CT will now be able to do coronary artery calcification scoring, and will now need to know the spiral CT appearance of the coronary artery anatomy. This pictorial review will demonstrate the anatomy needed for coronary artery calcium scoring.
