Coronary artery disease: screen or treat?

The central argument of The Widowmaker, a controversial US documentary attacking interventional cardiologists,1 is that computed tomographic (CT) calcium scoring could be used to screen the apparently healthy population and prevent thousands of deaths from heart attack.

The scans themselves are not treatment; they do not prolong lives.
