OBJECTIVE This study was performed to evaluate new scoring methods for quantitating coronary artery calcifications with helical CT and to compare the results with those of quantitative coronary angiography in patients with suspected coronary artery disease. SUBJECTS AND METHODS Unenhanced dual-slice helical CT and coronary angiography were performed… CONTINUE READING
