OBJECTIVES This report used intravascular ultrasound and quantitative coronary angiography to explore the relation between lesion-associated calcium and risk factors, clinical presentation and angiographic severity of coronary artery stenoses. BACKGROUND Coronary artery calcium is a marker for significant coronary atherosclerosis. Noninvasive procedures are being proposed as screening tests for coronary artery disease. Intravascular ultrasound identification of tissue calcium has been… CONTINUE READING
