This second part of the review on atherothrombosis highlights the diffuse nature of the disease analyzing the feasibility and potential of the noninvasive imaging modalities, including computed tomography (electron-beam computed and multi-detector computed tomography) and magnetic resonance imaging for its detection and monitoring. These imaging modalities are being established as promising tools in high-risk cardiovascular patients for identification and/or management of coronary calcification… CONTINUE READING
