GLOBAL Clinical Study
The GLOBAL study is an international multi-center, prospective study designed to enroll up to 10,000 consecutive eligible subjects who are clinically referred for coronary CT angiography for assessment of suspected coronary artery disease (CAD).
The purpose of the study is to perform extensive biomarker analysis of atherosclerosis in patients phenotyped using advanced imaging modalities of atherosclerosis.
