Brief Summary:
Study Type: Observational Study Design: Observational Model: Defined Population Observational Model: Natural History Time Perspective: Longitudinal Time Perspective: Prospective

Condition or disease
Atherosclerosis Cardiovascular Diseases Coronary Artery Disease

Detailed Description:
The natural history of individual plaques is unknown and needs to be established. Multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) angiography is a useful noninvasive imaging modality for assessing coronary plaque. Using MDCT, the researchers prospectively investigate the relationship between the presence of coronary plaques and cardiovascular events

Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 5000 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Cross-Sectional
Official Title: Prognostic Role of Coronary Artery plaquEs in Patients With Suspected Coronary Artery Disease Using Multislice of Computed Tomography (PREDICT)
Study Start Date : September 2005
Actual Primary Completion Date : August 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 2010
