18F-fluoride (18F-NaF) PET for Identifying Coronary Atherosclerotic Plaques

Read time: 1 mins
Last updated:1st Nov 2015

The purpose of this study is to evaluate whether 18F-NaF (sodium fluoride) Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scans can be used to identify ruptured and high-risk plaque as compared to non-invasive coronary Computed Tomography Angiography (CTA) scans and high-definition intravascular ultrasound (IVUS).

In subsets of patients, 18F-NaF PET scans and CCTA will be repeated to assess scan-rescan reproducibility.
