Asian patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) are frequently prescribed moderate-intensity statin in real practice, even during the early stage of ACS. Under assessment herein was the effect of moderate-intensity statin therapy on the resolution of plaque inflammation during the first month after ACS, a period with highest recurrent ischemic events, using dual time point ¹⁸F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG PET/CT).
