With these advancements, the Aquilion 64 CFX will be instrumental in visualizing peripheral vessels, soft plaque and measuring coronary stenosis on a greater range of patients.
CT can now be used on a greater range of patients to more accurately visualize soft plaque and measure coronary stenosis," said Ryan.
Cardiac syndrome X (CSX) is characterized by typical angina, abnormal exercise test results, and no critical coronary stenosis (1).
The program also will discuss important topics, including: -- How to use CT technology to assess coronary stenosis -- Identifying and quantifying calcified and non-calcified plaque for risk stratification -- Determining cardiac functions with CT -- Advantages of CT imaging for peripheral vasculature studies Presenters include: Joao A.
Diagnostic accuracy, sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive value of MSCT coronary angiography to detect coronary stenosis over 50% were calculated with the assumption of conventional invasive coronary angiography as the gold standard.
Assessment of the degree of coronary stenosis and serial evaluation of coronary artery pathologies are essential for risk stratification and therapeutic management.
In this study we aimed to examine the association between severity of coronary stenosis and renal function by quantifying the coronary lesions, angiographically and calculating the renal function with the use of GFR.
In conclusion, as the authors reported, there is a correlation between the severity of coronary stenosis and renal functional impairment independent of the other risk factors.
