RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES The exact quantification of the amount of calcification in aortic valves may be useful for the identification of risk factors for the progression of aortic valve calcification and to evaluate new therapeutic approaches for aortic valve disease. Electron beam tomography (EBT) allows the in vivo detection of calcifications in coronary vessels and in the aortic valve. The aim of this study was to validate the quantification of aortic valve calcification by EBT with in vivo… CONTINUE READING
