Advances in imaging technology have driven the rapid expansion in the use of computed tomography in the assessment of coronary atherosclerotic plaque. Current guidelines recommend coronary CT angiogra...
To summarize the current status of coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) in the assessment of coronary plaques and discuss the ability of serial coronary CTA to quantitatively measure changes...
Risk stratification by assessment of coronary artery disease using coronary computed tomography angiography in diabetes and non-diabetes patients: a study from the Western Denmark Cardiac Computed Tomography Registry.
We examined whether severity of coronary artery disease (CAD) measured by coronary computed tomography angiography can be used to predict rates of myocardial infarction (MI) and death in patients with...
Whether in asymptomatic populations levels of serum sirtuin 1 (Sirt1) are associated with coronary atherosclerosis plaque characteristics remains unclear. This article aims to evaluate the possibility...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether 18F-NaF (sodium fluoride) Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scans can be used to identify ruptured and high-risk plaque as compared to non...
Non-obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD), particularly common in women, has been associated with impaired quality of life and risk of recurrent hospitalizations. Several studies have ...
It is hypothesised that, in individuals being considered for cardiovascular preventative therapy, computed tomography coronary angiography guided management will reduce the future risk of ...
Disruption of an atherosclerotic plaque is responsible for at least two-thirds of acute coronary syndrome. Thus, identification of plaques vulnerable to rupture has become important. The n...
Lesions involving coronary bifurcations account for approximately 20% of all percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI). Revascularization within bifurcation sites remains technically chall...
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.
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.
Tomography using x-ray transmission and a computer algorithm to reconstruct the image.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
