426 Impact Of Visceral Abdominal Tissue On Coronary Artery Disease As Defined By Quantitative Computed Tomographic Angiography

      Introduction: Obesity has long been associated with all-cause mortality and cardiovascular disease (CVD). Visceral abdominal tissue (VAT) has been proposed as an important CVD risk stratification metric given its independent correlation with myocardial infarction and stroke. This study aims to clarify the relationship between the presence and severity of VAT with the presence and severity of coronary artery plaque as defined by total plaque volume, calcified plaque volume, non-calcified plaque volume, and high risk low-density non-calcified plaque using quantitative coronary computed tomography atherosclerosis imaging (AI-QCT).
