The effect of patient and imaging characteristics on coronary CT angiography assessed pericoronary adipose tissue attenuation and gradientCoronary CT angiography (CCTA) pericoronary adipose tissue (PCAT) markers are promising indicators of inflammation.
Are risk factors necessary for pretest probability assessment of coronary artery disease? A patient similarity network analysis of the PROMISE trialPretest probability (PTP) calculators utilize epidemiological-level findings to provide patient-level risk assessment of obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD). However, their limited accuracies question whether dissimilarities in risk factors necessarily result in differences in CAD. Using patient similarity network (PSN) analyses, we wished to assess the accuracy of risk factors and imaging markers to identify ≥50% luminal narrowing on coronary CT angiography (CCTA) in stable chest-pain patients.
Quantitative CT assessment identifies more heart transplanted patients with progressive coronary wall thickening than standard clinical readWe sought to compare quantitative coronary CT angiography (CTA) assessment versus standard clinical reading to identify heart transplanted (HTX) patients with progressive coronary wall thickening.
