Quantification of abdominal aortic calcification: Inherent measurement errors in current computed tomography imaging

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Quantification software for coronary calcification is often used to measure abdominal aortic calcification on computed tomography (CT) images. However, there is no evidence substantiating the reliability and accuracy of these tools in this setting. Differences in coronary and abdominal CT acquisition and presence of intravascular contrast may… (More)
