Noninvasive evaluation of the prevalence of noncalcified atherosclerotic plaques by multi-slice detector computed tomography: results of a pilot study.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Multi-slice detector computed tomography (MDCT) not only allows for the determination of coronary calcifications, but also for the noninvasive visualization of noncalcified plaques. Thus, coronary artery disease (CAD) can be detected at a fairly early stage. Since data on the prevalence of potentially rupture prone noncalcified coronary lesions… (More)
