The purpose of this study is to improve the medical knowledge of the behavior and role of lipid cores and deposits (fatty materials) in the coronary arteries on the heart health of patients. This will be done by setting up a registry (a database) called the COLOR Registry. The purpose of the registry is to collect information on a new device called the LipiScanTM Coronary Imaging System that is currently approved by the United States Food and Drug Administrator (FDA) as a tool to identify the fatty coronary artery plaques (cell build-up) that are most believed to cause sudden death and heart attacks.
