PRecisiOn medicine in CAD patients: artificial intelliGence for integRated gEnomic, functional and anatomical aSSessment of the coronary collateral circulation
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is a major burden for patients and healthcare systems worldwide. The most common cause of CAD is atherosclerosis, an inflammatory disease on with life-threatening effects in the coronary circulation.
Often, the circulation adapts through collateral artery formation, leading to significantly improved long-term post-ischemic outcome. Hence, timely determination of the collateral profile presents a pivotal factor in the personalised treatment of CAD.
