CAC score of zero virtually excludes development of coronary artery blockages in the next several years, but there can be a disconnect with carotid artery plaque formation. Moderate carotid artery stenosis isn't a great predictor of strokes, but I would consider taking daily low dose aspirin and consulting a vascular surgeon to advise you.on how.often to repeat carotid artery studies.
