Coloured 3D computed tomography (CT) angiogram of the view from the root of the aorta (main body artery) where it enters the heart, showing a calcified plaque (white, right of centre) blocking a coronary artery.

If these arteries become blocked or narrowed, this can cause a heart attack (myocardial infarction).
