    Cardiovascular death, non-fatal MI, or any stroke

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • all causes of hospitalization [ Time Frame: 1 years after the MDCT-scan ]
    Requiring hospitalization

Estimated Enrollment: 5000
Study Start Date: September 2005
Estimated Study Completion Date: December 2010

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
