Abstract

Background The extent to which the presence and extent of subclinical atherosclerosis by coronary computed tomography angiography influences a potential mortality benefit of statin is unknown. We evaluated the relationship between statin therapy, mortality, and subclinical atherosclerosis. Methods In the CONFIRM study, patients with normal or non-obstructive plaque (
