Coronary Calcium: A Comprehensive Understanding of Its Biology, Use in Screening, and Interventional Management provides a comprehensive update on the current understanding of the significance of coronary artery calcification, showing the connection to the development of advanced atherosclerosis that will lead to better risk evaluations. Coverage includes information on the basic science behind the development of coronary calcium in atherosclerotic lesions, the pathology of calcified coronary lesions in humans, its differential development by race, and its relationship to plaque progression. Computed tomography is also covered to show the significance of coronary calcium for risk prediction and the potential role of various pharmacologic interventions. Each chapter contains summaries with salient and important points, making this book perfect for researchers and physicians interested in the field of vascular calcification. Provides an easy-to-read update on the current understanding of coronary calcium from a pathologic perspective Offers cutting-edge knowledge on the future of coronary calcium screening and authoritative opinions from experts Delivers relevant information for the evaluation of patients who may have coronary artery disease using coronary calcium as evaluated by CT in risk stratification and treatment

We have demonstrated the ability to identify coronary calcium using non-gated, 2-shot, dual energy (DE) chest x-ray imaging. Here we used digital simulations to characterize DE calcium signals and the role of potential confounds such as beam hardening, scatter estimation, cardiac motion, and pulmonary artery pulsation. For the DE calcium signal, we will consider quantification, as compared to CT calcium score. We created digital 3D phantoms including heart, lung, coronary calcium, spine, ribs, pulmonary artery, and adipose. We simulated x-ray

Background: Coronary artery disease is common in diabetic patients .In asymptomatic Diabetic patients, routine screening for coronary artery disease is not recommended as it does not improve outcomes as long as atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease risk factors are treated. It is better to stratify risk for high risk patients for better control of risk factors.Aim: Coronary calcium score for screening of coronary artery disease in asymptomatic diabetic patients.

There is a strong relationship between cigarette smoking and the risk of cardiovascular events. Smoking influences negatively coagulation -- fibrinolysis cascade at any level, although it acts primarily on those pathways that are most important for an effective clot formation: endothelium, platelets, and fibronogen. Moreover, coronary circulation is the target organ of the damage due to smoking esposure. Endothelial dysfunction is a main consequence of smoke compounds with significant changes in initiating physiologic coagulation process; platelet adhesiveness and aggregation increases

Coronary artery disease is the most commonly encountered problem in adult cardiology in the world. Echocardiography is the most commonly used imaging modality encountered in cardiology practice in the world. Even though there are many Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) reference books and echocardiography reference books, there is no single practical book so far in the literature with focus on the combined topics. The authors believe that this will be the first book to provide information on how echocardiography can be

Despite recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of symptomatic atherosclerosis, available traditional screening methods for early detection and treatment of asymptomatic coronary artery disease are grossly insufficient and fail to identify the majority of victims prior to the onset of a life-threatening event. In Asymptomatic Atherosclerosis: Pathophysiology, Detection and Treatment, Dr. Morteza Naghavi and leading authorities from the Society for Heart Attack Prevention and Eradication (SHAPE) present a new paradigm for the screening and primary prevention of asymptomatic atherosclerosis.

This is the first monograph to focus exclusively on coronary radiology. It is particularly timely, given that the emergence of computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, coupled with improvements in both hard- and software, has made reproducible non-invasive coronary imaging a practical reality. A wide range of topics is addressed, including: quantitative angiography, intravascular and quantitative ultrasound, multislice and electron beam computed tomography, magnetic resonance coronary angiography and use of the coronary calcium score as an independent risk factor.

During the past few years, cardiac CT (CCT) has acquired an increasingly important role as a noninvasive imaging method that allows assessment of coronary heart disease from both the morphological and the functional standpoint. It is quickly becoming a primary clinical tool for the evaluation and follow-up of various conditions related to the heart and great vessels and is providing valuable insights into the natural history of atherosclerosis. The rapid advances in CCT technology, the advent of new clinical applications,
