Abstract Background Few data exist on long-term outcome in patients undergoing combined coronary CT angiography (CTA) and myocardial CT perfusion imaging (CTP) as well as invasive coronary angiography (ICA) and single photon emission tomography (SPECT). Methods At 16 centers, 381 patients were followed for major adverse cardiac events (MACE) for the CORE320 study. All patients underwent coronary CTA, CTP, and SPECT before ICA within 60 days. Prognostic performance according binary results (norma...

BACKGROUND The AHA recommends statins in patients with CACS>100 AU. However in patients with low CACS (1-99 AU), no clear statement is provided, leaving the clinician in a grey-zone. High-risk plaque (HRP) criteria by coronary CTA are novel imaging biomarkers indicating a higher a-priori cardiovascular (CV) risk, which could help for decision-making. Therefore the objective of our study was to identify which CV-risk factors predict HRP in patients with low CACS 1-99. METHODS 1003 symptomatic pat...

Abstract Background: Dynamic myocardial CT perfusion (CTP) has emerged as a potential strategy to combine anatomical and functional evaluation in a single modality. However, this method results in a high radiation dose. Methods: Dynamic CTP was performed in 56 patients with suspected or known ischemic heart disease of whom 48 had complete CT-data. Datasets with reduced sampling rate of 2- and 3 RR-intervals (2RR and 3RR) were constructed post hoc. Myocardial blood flow (MBF) estimates from the 2...

ABSTRACT: Background Increased attenuation of pericoronary adipose tissue (PCAT) around the right coronary artery (RCA) derived from coronary CTA might detect coronary inflammation. We investigated a potential association between RCA PCAT attenuation and serum levels of atherosclerosis-relevant cytokines and MACE (coronary revascularization, myocardial infarction and/or cardiac death). Methods Blood samples of 293 clinically stable individuals (59.0±9.8 years,69% males) were analyzed for atheros...
