Human coronary inflammation at coronary computed tomography in patients with INOCA.
Background: A new imaging metric using coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA), addressing the peri-coronary adipose tissue (PCAT) computed tomography (CT) attenuation, has been clinically validated. This method provides information regarding coronary inflammation. It is unclear how coronary inflammation affects microvascular function. The non-invasive evaluation of coronary flowvelocity reserve is…
