Non-statin therapy (NST) is used as second-line treatment when statin monotherapy is inadequate or poorly tolerated. Aim of this paper is to determine the association of NST with plaque composition, alone or in combination with statins, in patients undergoing coronary computed tomography angiography (coronary CTA).
