studies of EBCT for this purpose are strongly encouraged.
In patients at risk for coronary artery disease, can EBCT be used to predict cardiovascular events?
Each reported study used Imatron's EBCT to measure progression and regression of coronary artery calcium deposits.
Coronary calcium scans ("heart scans," coronary artery CT calcium scoring, also called EBCT for "electron beam") are noninvasive and useful predictive monitors for coronary events.
We measured coronary artery calcium (CAC) twice by EBCT and averaged the results, with prevalent CAC defined by an average score of >10 Agatston units, a data-derived threshold determined to maximize signal-to-noise ratio, as described (16).
Noncontrast-enhanced EBCT was performed with a C-150 scanner (GE Tmatron, South San Francisco, CA, USA) (Schmcrmund et al.
EBCT has been utilized in longitudinal studies, where the degree of CAC was shown to correlate with future ASCVD events in asymptomatic subjects.
In addition, novel non-invasive methods such as MRI and EBCT have not yet found widespread application for the diagnosis and classification of CAD, because of demanding nature of the technique, high cost, time-consuming or not readily available in all coronary laboratories (31, 32).
The EBCT falls under the command of the Future Force Integration Directorate (FFID), a U.
Fort Bliss will also witness the official stand-up of the FCS EBCT in March of next year, with the unit slowly expanding from 200 soldiers by the end of next summer to a total of 937 soldiers by September 2008.
The EBCT will take the spin out products through all the testing and evaluation events leading to a production decision.
