A study published in JAMA Cardiology found that patients with suspected coronary artery disease who had more than 1,000 Hounsfield units on imaging scans were at a lower risk for future acute coronary syndrome than those with a lower 1K plaque volume. The findings, based on a study of 189 people, also showed that patients with ACS had less severe coronary artery disease and were at a reduced risk of developing diabetes.
