Dr. Nero discusses evaluation of coronary artery disease and coronary inflammaiton with Dr. Cheerag Shirodaria from the University of Oxford. Dr. Shirodaria along with Prof. Charalambos Antonidies at Caristo Diagnostics have developed a ground breaking technology that allows us to evaluate not just the severity of a coronary artery lesion, but also how inflamed it is and how likely it is to cause fatal and non-fatal myocardial infarction. In addition, since it is a biologically active "marker" the Fat Attenuation Index (FAI) can also be used a a way to evaluate success of medical intervention. Using computer post processing from standard 64 or 128 slice CT coronary angiography, they have been able to evaluate not just the vulnerable patient but also (possibly) the vulnerable plaque.
