Comparison between integrated backscatter intravascular ultrasound and 64-slice multi-detector row computed tomography for tissue characterization and volumetric assessment of coronary plaques
Cardiovascular Ultrasound, 08/20/2012
Yamaki T et al. – Lipid volume measured by multi–detector row computed tomography was moderately correlated with that measured by integrated backscatter intravascular ultrasound. Multi–detector row computed tomography may be useful for volumetric assessment of the lipid volume of coronary plaques, whereas the assessment of fibrosis volume was unstable.
