1. Assessment of coronary artery calcium by chest CT compared with EKG-gated cardiac CT in the multicenter AIDS cohort study. (PubMed)

Assessment of coronary artery calcium by chest CT compared with EKG-gated cardiac CT in the multicenter AIDS cohort study. Individuals with HIV are at increased risk for coronary artery disease (CAD). Early detection of subclinical CAD by assessment of coronary artery calcium (CAC) may help risk stratify and prevent CAD events in these individuals. However, the current standard to quantify CAC i.e. Agatston scoring requires EKG-gated cardiac CT imaging.To determine if the assessment of CAC (...) where EKG-gated cardiac CT is not feasible for the assessment of coronary calcium, Weston scoring by using chest CT should be considered.

2. Coronary calcium scoring with partial volume correction in anthropomorphic thorax phantom and screening chest CT images. (PubMed)

Coronary calcium scoring with partial volume correction in anthropomorphic thorax phantom and screening chest CT images. The amount of coronary artery calcium determined in CT scans is a well established predictor of cardiovascular events. However, high interscan variability of coronary calcium quantification may lead to incorrect cardiovascular risk assignment. Partial volume effect contributes to high interscan variability. Hence, we propose a method for coronary calcium quantification (...) calcium scoring resulted in overestimation of calcium volume for medium and high density calcifications in the first phantom, and overestimation of calcium volume for high density and underestimation for low density calcifications in the second phantom. With induced motion these effects were further emphasized. The proposed quantification resulted in better accuracy and substantially lower over- and underestimation of calcium volume even in presence of motion. In chest CT, the agreement between

Iterative beam-hardening correction with advanced modeled iterative reconstruction in low voltage CT coronary calcium scoring with tin filtration: Impact on coronary artery calcium quantification and image quality. We investigated the impact of iterative beam-hardening correction (IBHC) with advanced modeled iterative reconstruction (ADMIRE) of ultra-low radiation-dose tin filtered (Sn100 kVp) CACS acquisitions on image quality, calcium quantification, and risk classification.CT data of 60 (...) patients (55% male, age 62.3 ± 9.8years) who underwent a 3rd generation dual-source CACS scan using a prospectively ECG-triggered 100 kVp sequential acquisition protocol with tin filtration (Sn100 kVp) were reconstructed using IBHC with filtered back projection (FBP) and ADMIRE with strength levels of three and five. Image noise was calculated and Agatston scores were derived from all reconstructions. Image noise, Agatston score categories, and percentile-based cardiac risk categorization

5. Qualitative coronary artery calcium assessment on CT lung screening exam helps predict first cardiac events (PubMed)

Qualitative coronary artery calcium assessment on CT lung screening exam helps predict first cardiac events A total of 1,513 individuals underwent CTLS. Downstream data, pre-test cardiac risk factors and CAC scores were available for 88.3% (1,336/1,513). The average length of follow-up was 2.64 (SD ±0.72) years. There were a total of 43 events, occurring in 1.55% (6/386) of patients with mild CAC, 3.24% (11/339) of patients with moderate CAC, and 8.90% (26/292) of patients with marked CAC (...) . There were no events among patients with no reported CAC (0/319). Using multivariable logistic modeling, the increased odds of an initial cardiac event was 2.56 (95% CI, 1.76-3.92, P<0.001) for mild CAC, 6.57 (95% CI, 3.10-15.4, P<0.001) for moderate CAC, and 16.8 (95% CI, 5.46-60.3, P<0.001) for marked CAC, as compared to individuals with no CAC. Time to event analysis showed distinct differences among the four CAC categories (P<0.001).Qualitative coronary artery calcification scoring of CTLS exams may

6. Computation of Calcium Score with Dual Energy CT: A Phantom Study (PubMed)

Computation of Calcium Score with Dual Energy CT: A Phantom Study Dual-energy computed tomography (DECT) improves material and tissue characterization compared with single-energy CT; we sought to validate coronary calcium quantification in advancing cardiovascular DECT. In an anthropomorphic phantom, agreement between measurements was excellent, and Bland-Altman analysis demonstrated minimal bias. Compared with the known calcium mass for each phantom, calcium mass by DECT was highly accurate (...) . Noncontrast DECT yields accurate calcium measures and warrants consideration in cardiac protocols for additional tissue characterizations.

Iterative reconstruction can permit the use of lower X-ray tube current in CT coronary artery calcium scoring CT coronary artery calcium scoring (CACS) is additive to traditional risk factors for predicting future cardiac events but is associated with relatively high radiation doses. We assessed the feasibility of CACS radiation dose reduction using a lower tube current and iterative reconstruction (IR).Artificial noise was added to the raw data from 27 CACS studies from patients who were (...) symptomatic to simulate lower tube current scanning (75, 50 and 25% original current). All studies were performed on the same CT scanner at 120 kVp. Data were reconstructed using filtered back projection [Quantum Denoising Software (QDS+)] and IR [adaptive iterative dose reduction three dimensional mild, standard and strong].

INTRODUCTION    The prognostic value of coronary artery calcium score (CACS) in symptomatic patients with a suspicion of coronary artery disease (CAD) has been poorly defined. OBJECTIVES    The aim of the study was to assess the predictive value of the CACS in the incidence of major adverse coronary events (MACEs) in patients (...) with an intermediate probability of CAD and establish its usefulness as the first-line risk assessment tool. PATIENTS AND METHODS    This single-center, observational, prospective study enrolled consecutive symptomatic patients without a previous diagnosis of CAD, referred to our center for CACS assessment with non-contrast-enhanced cardiac computed tomography (CT). CACS measurements were performed using an electrocardiogram-gated 64-row CT scanner. The CACS measurement was treated as the first‑line noninvasive

This study sought to perform a prospective head-to-head comparison of the predictive value of clinical risk factors and a variety of cardiac imaging modalities including coronary artery calcium score (CACS), coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA), single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT), and invasive coronary (...) . Of the diagnostic modalities, coronary CTA and ICA significantly predicted MACE, but only coronary CTA predicted death. In contrast, SPECT predicted neither MACE nor death.Compared with traditional risk factors and other cardiac imaging modalities, CACS and coronary CTA seem superior for risk stratification in kidney transplant candidates. Applying a combination of risk factors and CACS and subsequently coronary CTA seems to be the most appropriate strategy. (Angiographic CT of Renal Transplantation Candidate
