  • BACKGROUND Carotid artery intima-media thickness (CIMT), a marker of atherosclerosis, is increased in youth at risk for future cardiovascular disease. Some pediatric studies have used CIMT as a primary outcome in clinical trials, yet data are limited on the standardization of methodology in children. The goal of this study was to evaluate reproducibility of CIMT measurements using two different measurement techniques. METHODS Carotid artery ultrasound studies of children and adolescents… CONTINUE READING
