Coronary Calcium: A Comprehensive Understanding of Its Biology, Use in Screening, and Interventional Management provides a comprehensive update on the current understanding of the significance of coronary artery calcification, showing the connection to the development of advanced atherosclerosis that will lead to better risk evaluations. Coverage includes information on the basic science behind the development of coronary calcium in atherosclerotic lesions, the pathology of calcified coronary lesions in humans, its differential development by race, and its relationship to plaque progression. Computed tomography is also covered to show the significance of coronary calcium for risk prediction and the potential role of various pharmacologic interventions. Each chapter contains summaries with salient and important points, making this book perfect for researchers and physicians interested in the field of vascular calcification. Provides an easy-to-read update on the current understanding of coronary calcium from a pathologic perspective Offers cutting-edge knowledge on the future of coronary calcium screening and authoritative opinions from experts Delivers relevant information for the evaluation of patients who may have coronary artery disease using coronary calcium as evaluated by CT in risk stratification and treatment

Detection and Quantification of Coronary Calcium from Dual Energy Chest X rays

We have demonstrated the ability to identify coronary calcium using non-gated, 2-shot, dual energy (DE) chest x-ray imaging. Here we used digital simulations to characterize DE calcium signals and the role of potential confounds such as beam hardening, scatter estimation, cardiac motion, and pulmonary artery pulsation. For the DE calcium

Coronary Calcium Score Predictor of Coronary Artery Disease

Background: Coronary artery disease is common in diabetic patients .In asymptomatic Diabetic patients, routine screening for coronary artery disease is not recommended as it does not improve outcomes as long as atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease risk factors are treated. It is better to stratify risk for high risk patients for better

Stunning  Hibernation  and Calcium in Myocardial Ischemia and Reperfusion

Stunning is potentially an important complication of myocardial reperfusion. In contrast, hibernation is an important complication of myocardial ischemia. This book presents different viewpoints on these subjects, taken from a series of peer-reviewed articles which first appeared in Cardiovascular Drugs and Therapy, and now in this book. In addition, a
