Framingham Coronary Heart Disease Risk Score
Estimates risk of heart attack in 10 years.
There are several distinct Framingham risk models. MDCalc uses the 'Hard' Coronary Framingham outcomes model, which is intended for use in non-diabetic patients age 30-74 years with no prior history of coronary heart disease or intermittent claudication, as it is the most widely applicable to patients without previous cardiac events. See the official Framingham website for additional Framingham risk models.
