Non-invasive atherosclerosis findings have been demonstrated to provide incremental diagnostic and predictive values for ischemia, acute coronary syndrome, and cardiovascular outcomes. The challenge is to translate research findings to a clinical role. Here, we review the current utility of atherosclerotic imaging and the incremental value of plaque imaging. We also evaluate future clinical and research implications for three patient populations: asymptomatic prevention, stable chest pain, and acute chest pain.
