Abstract

We compared 16-slice computed tomography with intravascular ultrasound in the detection of unstable component characteristics of nonstenotic plaque responsible for acute coronary syndrome. Computed tomography accurately assessed plaque eccentricity, calcification, and remodeling, and intraplaque hypodensity correlated with intravascular ultrasound echolucent area.
