Researchers using electron beam computed tomography and magnetic resonance have found that a moderate increase in waist size could markedly increase the risk of calcium deposits in the arteries, even for those whose body weight still falls within the normal range.
Its offerings include networking and productivity tools, clinical information systems, patient monitoring systems, surgery and vascular imaging, conventional and digital X-ray, computed tomography, electron beam computed tomography, magnetic resonance, ultrasound and bone mineral densitometry, positron emission tomography, nuclear medicine and a full line of clinical and business services.
Since patients with high coronary artery calcium scores -- as measured by Ultrafast CT -- were as much as 35 times more likely to have coronary events as those with low calcium scores, the authors concluded that electron beam computed tomography (EBCT) should be used routinely to screen for occult coronary artery disease in asymptomatic middle-aged men and women.

The second study, entitled "Nanobacterial Epidemiology, Inflammatory Markers and Coronary Artery Calcification in Asymptomatic Presumed Normal Patients" is designed to evaluate the hypotheses that Antibodies and/or Antigens to Nanobacteria are: A) associated with Coronary Artery Calcification Scores (by Electron Beam Computed Tomography (EBCT)) in a group of "normal" individuals, B) are associated with elevated inflammatory markers and C) when considered individually and in conjunction with positive responses to six other pathogens and inflammatory markers, the odds ratio of predicting Coronary Artery Calcification is increased.
