Abstract

Background. Multidetector-row computed tomography (MDCT) is an attractive noninvasive imaging modality for detecting coronary atherosclerotic plaques, which may be underestimated by conventional angiography. The aim of our study was to determine the predictive value of plasma asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA), homocysteine, and high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hsCRP) levels for occult coronary artery disease (CAD).
