Fatima Rodriguez, MD, MPH


  • Understand the role of coronary artery calcium (CAC) in enhancing atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) risk assessment and guiding statin therapy decisions.
  • Explore the application of deep learning algorithms for quantifying incidental CAC in non-gated CT scans and its potential impact on statin prescription rates.
  • Evaluate the potential of artificial intelligence in improving opportunistic ASCVD screening and identify areas for future research focusing on clinical outcomes and health equity.
