Predictive Values of the Ideal Cardiovascular Health and the Fuster-BEWAT Scores for Detecting Subclinical Atherosclerosis in Healthy Individuals
Background: The Ideal Cardiovascular Health Score (ICHS) has been validated for predicting CV event risk. The Fuster-BEWAT Score (FBS) is simpler as it does not use laboratory parameters (cholesterol and fasting glucose). The predictive value of these scores to detect the extent of ...
Reproducibility of Three-Dimensional Vascular Ultrasound for the Detection and Quantification of Early Atherosclerosis: A FAMILIA Substudy
Introduction: Three-dimensional vascular ultrasound (3DVUS) offers promise for cardiovascular risk stratification in the general population. However, 3DVUS reproducibility in early stages of atherosclerosis disease has not been well stablished. Objective: To determine 3DVUS agreement and reproducibility...
Racial Disparities in Early Subclinical Atherosclerosis: Insights from the FAMILIA Study
Introduction: African-Americans are at a greater risk of cardiovascular (CV) events. Differential race vulnerability to early subclinical atherosclerosis disease is likely, and yet few studies have addressed this relationship. Objective: To study the impact of race on the presence of...
