OBJECTIVE: We aimed to evaluate the association of the prognostic impact of coronary revascularisation with physician-referred non-invasive diagnostic imaging tests (single photon emission CT (SPECT) vs coronary CT angiography) for coronary artery disease.DESIGN: A post hoc analysis of a...

Physical activity and exercise training are effective strategies for reducing the risk of cardiovascular events, but multiple studies have reported an increased prevalence of coronary atherosclerosis, usually measured as coronary artery calcification, among athletes who are middle-aged and older....

BACKGROUND: CT myocardial perfusion imaging (CTP) represents one of the newly developed CT-based techniques but its cost-effectiveness in the clinical pathway is undefined. The aim of the study is to evaluate the usefulness of combined evaluation of coronary anatomy...

The world of cardiac imaging is proposing to physicians an ever-increasing spectrum of options and tools with the disadvantages of patients presently submitted to multiple, sequential, time-consuming, and costly diagnostic procedures and tests, sometimes with contradicting results. In the...

BACKGROUND: Levels of circulating endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) are associated with the short-term prognosis of patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). No previous study, however, has ascertained if EPCs are related also to long-term outcome. We performed a pre-specified...

Multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) scanners with current equipment allow for a rapid and robust noninvasive assessment of coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) anatomy and patency. With both appropriate expertise in MDCT techniques and knowledge in CABG imaging interpretation, radiologists...

BACKGROUND: Shear wave elastography (SWE) directly quantifies the local arterial wall stiffness by calculating the elastic modulus. However, whether carotid wall elastic modulus can predict obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD) is not well known. We aimed to investigate the...
