Cardiac (Cardiac CT: Lesion and Plaque Detection)

Monday, November 29, 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM

Researchers are presenting nine cardiac CT studies, including papers that focus on diagnostic accuracy of 128-slice dual-source CT protocols and 320-slice CT for evaluation of various patient populations and conditions, the relationship between coronary artery plaque and serum levels of C-reactive protein and the influence of the calcium score reconstruction interval on risk stratification in asymptomatic patients.
