    Background: Optimal contrast enhancement is crucial for the detection of coronary artery stenoses and atherosclerotic changes in coronary CT angiography (CTA). Purpose: To demonstrate the feasibility of using the cardiac output (CO) obtained from the test bolus injection data-set (COtest) as a...

    High total homocysteine (tHcy) concentrations increase coronary disease risk. Therefore, the authors examined the relation between tHcy concentrations and the number of stenotic arteries in patients with ischemic heart disease (IHD). They enrolled 155 patients with IHD (135 men) who had...

    Patients with coronary artery calcium (CAC) scores of zero are generally considered not to have atherosclerosis. Recent studies involving computed tomography coronary angiography (CTCA) challenge this assumption. This goal of the present study is to assess the frequency, morphology, location,...
