Korea Atherosclerosis Study-3
Evaluation of Coronary Artery Disease With Multidetector-Row Cardiac Computed Tomography in Positive Cardiovascular Risk or Not
Multidetector-row Computed Tomography (CT) has been introduced for use in the diagnosis of coronary heart disease. The investigators aimed to characterize coronary artery disease in subjects with cardiovascular risk or not, and in particular plaque natures depending on different status of cardiovascular risk. Especially,the investigators will evaluate the relationships between the pericardial fat and severity of stenosis as well as plaque characteristics using logistic regression models.
