WBO: Research into calcium score and risk of cardiovascular disease
WBO: onderzoek naar kalkscore en kans op hart- en vaatziekten

The Erasmus MC research proposal is part of the prospective cohort study called the Rotterdam study (ERGO). The committee finds the proposal scientificly sound. It considers that the scientific benefit of the study clearly outweighs the risks for the individual participants, provided that abnormalities are not actively sought for outside the scope of the research questions. Other conditions are that the coronary artery calcium score is communicated only on request and only as neutral information, and that the information folder and the consent form are revised.
