An Open Letter to The Hong Kong College of Cardiology Regarding Electron Beam Computed Tomography (EBT)
My experience with Electron Beam Computed Tomography (EBT) now dates me at over 20 years of research and clinical practice, initially in cardiac physiology, but for the past decade in coronary atherosclerosis, athersoclerosis imaging, and Preventive Cardiology. Thus, I feel I can speak from some level of authority as well as considerable experience. The point in question relates to the use of EBT and coronary calcium scoring for defining coronary disease in a non- invasive manner. I will admit, like many trained formally in traditional Cardiology and brought up with the idea that definition of coronary stenoses severity was our standard in defining coronary disease, that my initial efforts in using coronary calcium were directed towards that end.
