Coronary MDCT (multi-detector computed tomography) has been useful screening imaging modality for the coronary artery disease. Recently, novel adipokines and hepatokines as well as various inflammatory markers have been known as direct regulators of atherosclerosis. Therefore, the investigators examine the correlation of various metabolic risk factors including adipokines and hepatokines with coronary atherosclerosis measured by coronary MDCT in apparently healthy people.
||Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Primary Outcome Measures:
- relation of adipokines and hepatokines with coronary atherosclerosis measured by MDCT [ Time Frame: 3month ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
to examine the correlation of serum concentration of various adipokine such as adiponectin, resistin, A-FABP with coronary atheroslcerosis measured by MDCT as AGATSTON score, modified Gensini score
Secondary Outcome Measures:
- relation of adipokines and hepatokines with coronary atherosclerosis measured by MDCT [ Time Frame: 3months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
to examine the correlation of serum concentration of various hepatokines such as FGF-21, fetuin- A and selenoprotein P with coronary atheroslcerosis measured by MDCT as AGATSTON score, modified Gensini score
- the correlation of various inflammatory markers with coronary atherosclerosis [ Time Frame: 3months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
