    Abstract

    Background: Coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA) can be used to detect and quantitatively assess high-risk plaque features. Objective: To validate the ROMICAT score, which was derived using semi-automated quantitative measurements of high-risk plaque features, for the prediction of ACS. Material and methods: We performed quantitative plaque analysis in 260 patients who presented to the emergency department with suspected ACS in the ROMICAT II trial. The readers used a semi-automated software (QAngio, Medis medical imaging systems BV) to measure high-risk plaque features (volume of
