RATIONALE AND OBJECTIVES To quantitatively assess coronary atherosclerotic plaque composition in patients with acute non-ST elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) and patients with stable coronary artery disease (CAD) by coronary computed tomography angiography (cCTA) correlated with virtual histology intravascular ultrasound (VH-IVUS). MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixty patients (35 with NSTEMI) were included. Corresponding plaques were assessed by dual-source cCTA and VH-IVUS regarding volumes… CONTINUE READING
