According to current ESC Guidelines, the Systemic Coronary Risk Estimation2 (SCORE2) algorithm is recommended to estimate the 10-year CVD risk in apparently healthy people aged 40-69 years with risk factors that are untreated or have been stable for several years. For those aged 70 years or older, the SCORE2–Old Persons (SCORE2-OP) algorithm is recommended. Current risk scores can over- or underestimate CVD risk in various ethnic minority groups. To improve CVS risk stratification, coronary artery calcium (CAC) scoring is the best-established imaging modality. Routinely measuring additional circulating and urine biomarkers is unnecessary for CVD primary prevention.
