OBJECTIVES We examined whether delayed-enhancement cardiovascular magnetic resonance (DE-CMR) coronary artery wall imaging correlated with atherosclerosis detected by using multislice computed tomography (MSCT) and quantitative coronary angiography (QCA). BACKGROUND The use of DE-CMR coronary vessel wall imaging may provide a noninvasive method to assess diseased coronary vessel walls. METHODS We performed DE-CMR coronary artery wall imaging in 14 patients with cardiovascular risk factors… CONTINUE READING
