    The Curious Incident of Spotty Calcium (in Unstable Atherosclerotic Plaque)

    Intravascular imaging studies – initially using intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) and more recently using optical coherence tomography (OCT) – as well an non-invasive imaging using multidetector computed tomography (CT) have reported spotty calcification – small calcium deposits within an atherosclerotic plaque – to be a distinct morphologic finding of both plaque instability in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and future atheroma progression even in patients with stable coronary artery disease.
