Does coronary CT scan w/calcium score rule out coronary artery disease/atherosclerosis?

In brief: Coronary CT

Calcium score CT doesn't rule out atherosclerosis or chance of heart attack.
With that said the more calcium the more volume of plaque both calcified and noncalcified. The test can help when the need for drug therapy isn't clear.
