Prediction of coronary artery disease by a systemic atherosclerosis score index derived from whole-body MR angiography

Abstract

BACKGROUND Whole-body magnetic resonance angiography (WB-MRA) has shown its potential for the non-invasive assessment of nearly the entire arterial vasculature within one examination. Since the presence of extra-cardiac atherosclerosis is associated with an increased risk of coronary events, our goal was to establish the relationship between WB-MRA findings… (More)
