Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis: objectives and design.
The Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis was initiated in July 2000 to investigate the prevalence, correlates, and progression of subclinical cardiovascular disease (CVD) in a population-based sample of 6,500 men and women aged 45-84 years for identification and characterization of CVD events.

2013 ACC/AHA Guideline on the Assessment of Cardiovascular Risk: A Report of the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association Task Force on Practice Guidelines
The ACC and AHA have collaborated with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute and stakeholder and professional organizations to develop guidelines, standards, and policies that promote optimal patient care and cardiovascular health. Expand
Assessment of Coronary Artery Disease by Cardiac Computed Tomography: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association Committee on Cardiovascular Imaging and Intervention, Council on
The utility and limitations of generations of cardiac CT systems are reviewed, with emphasis on CT measurement of CAD and coronary artery calcified plaque (CACP) and noncalcified plaque. Expand
Walking compared with vigorous exercise for the prevention of cardiovascular events in women.
It is indicated that both walking and vigorous exercise are associated with substantial reductions in the incidence of cardiovascular events among postmenopausal women, irrespective of race or ethnic group, age, and body-mass index. Expand
From vulnerable plaque to vulnerable patient: a call for new definitions and risk assessment strategies: Part I.
The term "vulnerable patient" may be more appropriate and is proposed now for the identification of subjects with high likelihood of developing cardiac events in the near future and a quantitative method for cumulative risk assessment of vulnerable patients needs to be developed. Expand
Assessment of cardiovascular risk by use of multiple-risk-factor assessment equations: a statement for healthcare professionals from the American Heart Association and the American College of
The approaches described in this statement can be used for guidance at several levels of primary prevention; however, the statement does not attempt to specifically link risk assessment to treatment guidelines for particular risk factors, but provides critical background information that could be used in the development of new treatment guidelines. Expand
Coronary artery calcium score combined with Framingham score for risk prediction in asymptomatic individuals.
Data support the hypothesis that high CACS can modify predicted risk obtained from FRS alone, especially among patients in the intermediate-risk category in whom clinical decision making is most uncertain. Expand
AHA Guidelines for Primary Prevention of Cardiovascular Disease and Stroke: 2002 Update: Consensus Panel Guide to Comprehensive Risk Reduction for Adult Patients Without Coronary or Other
This 2002 update of the Guide acknowledges a number of advances in the field of primary prevention since 1997 and research continues to refine the recommendations on detection and management of established risk factors. Expand
