Summary of "Reproducibility of quantitative coronary computed tomography angiography in asymptomatic individuals and patients with acute chest pain."

Quantitative computed tomography (QCT) provides important prognostic information of coronary atherosclerosis. We investigated intraobserver and interobserver QCT reproducibility in asymptomatic individuals, patients with acute chest pain without acute coronary syndrome (ACS), and patients with acute chest pain and ACS.

Consistency of quantitative analysis of coronary computed tomography angiography.

The present study aimed to assess the reliability and reproducibility of coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) for the serial quantitative assessment of plaque volume.

Ten-Year Follow-Up After Coronary Computed Tomography Angiography in Patients With Suspected Coronary Artery Disease.

The aim of this study was to determine the long-term prognostic power of coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) to predict cardiac death and nonfatal myocardial infarction.

Coronary Computed Tomography Angiography and Calcium Scoring.

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide and describes many heart and vessel disorders. One of these disorders, coronary artery disease (CAD), occurs because of narrowed or block...

Contrast-to-Noise Ratio Optimization in Coronary Computed Tomography Angiography: Validation in a Swine Model.

The accuracy of coronary computed tomography (CT) angiography depends upon the degree of coronary enhancement as compared to the background noise. Unfortunately, coronary contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR)...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An imaging technique using a device which combines TOMOGRAPHY, EMISSION-COMPUTED, SINGLE-PHOTON and TOMOGRAPHY, X-RAY COMPUTED in the same session.

Computed tomography where there is continuous X-ray exposure to the patient while being transported in a spiral or helical pattern through the beam of irradiation. This provides improved three-dimensional contrast and spatial resolution compared to conventional computed tomography, where data is obtained and computed from individual sequential exposures.

The statistical reproducibility of measurements (often in a clinical context), including the testing of instrumentation or techniques to obtain reproducible results. The concept includes reproducibility of physiological measurements, which may be used to develop rules to assess probability or prognosis, or response to a stimulus; reproducibility of occurrence of a condition; and reproducibility of experimental results.

A non-invasive method that uses a CT scanner for capturing images of blood vessels and tissues. A CONTRAST MATERIAL is injected, which helps produce detailed images that aid in diagnosing VASCULAR DISEASES.

Computed tomography modalities which use a cone or pyramid-shaped beam of radiation.
