PURPOSE To use a recently described regression approach to evaluate agreement in the quantity of coronary artery calcification (CAC) with two consecutive acquisitions (dual scan runs) at electron-beam computed tomography (CT) in a quality-control program and to assess the change in CAC quantity over time in an individual. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 1,376 asymptomatic research participants, who were not selected because they were at high risk for coronary artery disease, were examined… CONTINUE READING
