Image: Coronary CT angiography images demonstrate examples of high-risk plaque features. A, Image was obtained in a 63-year-old man with partially calcified plaque, positive remodeling (vertical arrow), and spotty calcium (horizontal arrow). B, A cross-sectional view of a noncalcified plaque in a 65-year-old man demonstrates a napkin-ring sign with a central low-attenuation area, surrounded by a peripheral rim of higher attenuation (arrow) next to the lumen (∗). C, Image in a 60-year-old woman with partially calcified plaque demonstrates a low CT number in the midportion (arrow) (Photo courtesy of the journal Radiology).

Coronary CT Angiography Reveals Link between Coronary Artery Plaque and Liver Disease
