Figure 1 Flow diagram of study population selection. A total of 265 patients underwent coronary angiography prior to orthotopic liver transplantation. Of this sample, 173 patients had dobutamine stress echocardiography (DSE). Only patients with a diagnostic DSE were used for data analysis (n=73). A total of 133 patients had a chest computed tomography scan suitable for calcium scoring. A total of 36 patients had a diagnostic DSE and could be used for the head-to-head comparison of the 2 tests. Figure was created using Microsoft Word version 2010.
