BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to predict the risk of coronary-arteriosclerosis and prognosis in subjects with chronic-atrial-fibrillation (CAF) using the CHADS2 and CHA2DS2-VASc scores by 320-slice-CT and invasive-coronary-angiography (ICA) in a two-center-study. METHODS 53 CAF subjects who underwent 320-slice-CT and ICA within 6-months (43 male; 69… CONTINUE READING
