OBJECTIVE Pericardial adipose tissue (PAT) is a pathogenic fat depot associated with coronary atherosclerosis and cardiovascular events. We hypothesized that higher PAT is associated with coronary high-risk lesions as determined by cardiac CT. METHODS We included 358 patients (38% female; median age 51 years) who were admitted to the ED with acute chest pain and underwent 64-slice CT angiography. The cardiac CT data sets were assessed for presence and morphology of CAD and PAT. Coronary high… Expand
