BACKGROUND Coronary CTA allows characterization of non-calcified and calcified plaque and identification of high-risk plaque features. OBJECTIVE We aimed to quantitatively characterize and compare coronary plaque burden from CTA in patients with a first acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and controls with stable coronary artery disease. MATERIALS AND METHODS We retrospectively analyzed consecutive patients with non-ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) or unstable angina with a… CONTINUE READING
