PURPOSE To test the accuracy and precision of multi-detector row computed tomography (CT)-derived measurements of vascular calcification in ex vivo human carotid endarterectomy (CEA) specimens. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sixteen ex vivo CEA specimens were imaged with multi-detector row CT. Multi-detector row CT-derived calcium scoring algorithms (ie, mineral mass and volume score) were compared with the mass and volume of ashed remnants of the CEA specimens. Bland-Altman analysis was performed to… CONTINUE READING
