Calcified coronaries is a hallmark of severe coronary artery disease and is usually diagnosed on invasive angiography. A 61 year old lady presented with acute onset central chest pain for 5 days and was diagnosed with ACS - NSTEMI. Her chest X ray revealed calcified coronaries, which was further confirmed on invasive coronary angiography. Calcified coronaries, if visualised on chest X ray, can be used as a marker of diffuse coronary artery disease with calcification.
