Fabian Bamberg M.D., M.P.H.

The characteristics of this test, enabling rapid, noninvasive exclusion of obstructive lesions along with the definition of the distribution, severity, and composition of the atherosclerotic burden, uniquely address current and emerging needs in CAD management. Read more

Differences in coronary artery disease by CT angiography between patients developing unstable angina pectoris vs. major adverse cardiac events

posted by Fabian Bamberg M.D., M.P.H. | Sep 24, 2014
Fabian Bamberg M.D., M.P.H.

CT angiography (CTA) has prognostic value in patients. But it is unknown whether differences in atherosclerosis by CTA predict the development of unstable angina pectoris (UAP) vs. major adverse cardiac events (MACE). Read more
