Table 1 Calcified plaque scoring system

From: 68Ga-DOTATATE PET/CT for the detection of inflammation of large arteries: correlation with18F-FDG, calcium burden and risk factors

Score Calcified occupation of the vessel circumference (%)
0 0
1 <10
2 10 to 25
3 25 to 50
4 >50
  1. The total calcified plaque burden for each of the eight arterial segments was defined as the sum of the individual calcified plaque scores.
