CT Evaluation of the Myocardial Effects of Risk Factors

Project: Research project

Description

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Microvascular disease may account for the synergistic increase in incidence of cardiac events observed during exposure to the common cardiovascular risk factors hypercholesterolemia (HC) and hypertension (HT) in the absence of significant coronary artery stenosis (CAS). However, the mechanisms underlying these effects have not been fully elucidated, because microvessels (mu-v) (
