Arterial Stiffness Is Positively Associated With 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography-Assessed Subclinical Vascular Inflammation in People With Early Type 2 Diabetes.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Type 2 diabetes is accompanied by premature atherosclerosis and arterial stiffness. The underlying association remains incompletely understood. The possible relationship between subclinical arterial inflammation assessed by (18)F-fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) and arterial stiffness was… (More)
