OBJECTIVES This study sought to determine whether arterial inflammation measured by (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography ((18)F-FDG-PET) improves prediction of cardiovascular disease (CVD) beyond traditional risk factors. BACKGROUND It is unknown whether arterial (18)F-FDG uptake measured with routine PET imaging provides incremental(More)
PURPOSE To report the endovascular exclusion of an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) in a patient with a horseshoe kidney and an isthmus mass with preservation of accessory renal vessels. CASE REPORT A 70-year-old man with a 5-cm AAA and renal cell carcinoma involving a horseshoe kidney was treated with an AneuRx bifurcated graft. Two accessory renal(More)
BACKGROUND Bronchial asthma is a chronic inflammatory condition associated with increased cardiovascular (CV) events. Here, we assess arterial inflammation, using 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography imaging (FDG-PET/CT), in patients with bronchial asthma and low to intermediate Framingham risk scores (FRS). METHODS A(More)
