Coronary artery disease is a major contributor to increased mortality rates in patients with schizophrenia in whom less treatment of cardiovascular (CV) risk factors is seen. Risk prediction models used in the general population are not sufficient to predict CV mortality in patients with schizophrenia. Measurement of calcium score (CACS) by cardiac CT-scan improves risk prediction in the general population, but has not been investigated in patients with schizophrenia. CACS might contribute to improved CV risk assessment and treatment in these patients and further studies should address this.
