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

Calcium sensitizers are a new class of drug which increases the force of contraction of the heart by increasing the calcium sensitivity of contractile proteins. Their development represents the first major innovation in the treatment of heart failure for over 200 years. Unlike other drugs in this area, they do not increase the intracellular calcium concentration and do not have the side effects associated with that mechanism of action. These drugs offer an exciting alternative approach to the treatment of heart failure, and this volume provides an authoritative overview of the physiology, biochemistry, and clinical issues involved. It will be of interest to pharmacologists, research and clinical cardiologists, and physiologists.

Aim: Type 2 diabetes is a risk factor for coronary artery disease; however, a number of studies have shown that patients are asymptomatic for coronary artery disease. The presence of coronary artery disease in asymptomatic patients with type 2 diabetes was evaluated to determine its impact on management decision and prognosis. Methods: A total of 75 patients underwent single-photon emission computed tomography myocardial perfusion imaging for detection of suspected coronary artery disease. We used 17-segment model for perfusion and function analysis. Multislice computed tomography was performed in 45 patients to assess coronary artery calcium. Complete laboratory analyses with lipid values and standard risk factors were analysed. Forward logistic regression analysis was used to assess predictive parameters for myocardial ischaemia during the follow-up period of 20 ± 4 months. Results and Conclusion: Silent myocardial ischaemia and subclinical coronary artery disease can be detected in a significant proportion of asymptomatic patients with type 2 diabetes. Diabetic patients with normal myocardial perfusion imaging had an excellent 2-year prognosis with optimal medical therapy and intensive risk factor control. In comparison, an abnormal myocardial perfusion imaging led to an increased risk of cardiovascular events. Myocardial perfusion imaging and coronary artery calcium are valuable tools for risk stratification and optimal treatment decision in this asymptomatic diabetic cohort of Macedonian patients.

Until recently, CT scanner performance was limited by a series of compromises. With single-detector scanners, one cannot select thin collimation and still maintain the required extent of volumetric coverage. Slow scans cause motion artifacts that impair image quality. The introduction of multidetector CT technology, however, has revolutionized the field. Currently multidetector, multislice CT scanners acquire up to four channels of data from interweaving spirals. The minimum gantry rotation period is as low as half of a second. This increased scan speed allows for thinner collimation and thus higher longitudinal or z-axis resolution in comparison with single-detector CT. The improved image quality with multidetector technology leads to new applications of CT, particularly in cardiac, vascular, and abdominal imaging. On-going clinical studies are evaluating the suitability of this new imaging tool for non-invasive screening and diagnosis of coronary artery disease. A particular advantage to the increased scan speed in vascular imaging is the ability to cut intra venous contrast dosage and still maintain peak enhancement CT throughout the entire acquisition. Thin-section, multiphasic acquisition during optimal arterial-phase and venous-phase enhan cement significantly improves the accuracy for small lesion and vessel detection, and enhances overall classification of abdominal neoplasms. On the other hand, the increasingly large volume data sets force to new ways of looking at, presenting, storing, and trans ferring images. Networking and two- and three dimensional data processing are the key words.
