RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES Atherosclerosis is a systemic process associated with arterial calcification in multiple vascular beds. This study investigated correlations between aortic root calcification (ARC) quantified using Agatston and volumetric scoring methods with coronary atherosclerotic markers (coronary artery calcification [CAC], calcified plaques,(More)
It has been reported that coronary atherosclerosis risk assessment using coronary artery calcium and thoracic aorta calcium quantification may improve risk stratification as it can lead to the reclassification of persons at increased risk. The aortic root has been characterized by its close anatomical proximity to the ostial origins of the right and left(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aimed to assess the effect of body mass index (BMI) on the relationship between pericardial fat volume (PFV), aortic root calcification (ARC) and coronary artery calcification (CAC) among patients with suspected coronary artery disease (CAD). METHODS This cross-sectional study took place between January and December 2014 at the Kufa(More)
