BACKGROUND Interscan variability of coronary arterial plaque volume and composition quantification with coronary computed tomographic angiography (CCTA), an important attribute when considering CCTA as a serial modality, has not been examined. OBJECTIVE We sought to systematically determine intraobserver- and interobserver-interscan reproducibility of these measures. METHODS Two blinded, experienced readers independently evaluated proximal coronary segments on CCTAs from 30 patients who… CONTINUE READING
