BACKGROUND Total white blood cell (WBC) count has been consistently shown to be an independent risk factor and predictor for future cardiovascular outcomes, regardless of disease status in coronary artery disease (CAD). The purpose of this study is to evaluate the relationship between total WBC count and the presence, severity and extent of coronary atherosclerosis detected in subjects undergoing multislice computed tomographic (MSCT) coronary angiography for suspected CAD. METHODS A total of… CONTINUE READING
