OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to compare the accuracy of 64-MDCT with that of intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) for the identification and quantitative analysis of coronary atherosclerotic plaques. MATERIALS AND METHODS Twenty-six patients (17 men, nine women; mean age, 56 years) with suspected coronary atherosclerotic disease were studied using contrast-enhanced 64-MDCT and IVUS. The coronary arteries were divided into 10-mm segments and vascular cross-sectional area (CSA), luminal… CONTINUE READING
