Description of Research
Dr. Nabi´s current research is studying optimal risk stratification of emergency room patients using artery calcium scoring, CT angiography, and nuclear cardiology. Resulting data from these studies will be used to develop accurate and cost effective imaging algorithms for triaging relatively low risk patients with chest pain.
