To evaluate the association between common carotid intima-media thickness and noninvasively assessed atherosclerosis elsewhere in the carotid artery, we used data from the Rotterdam Study, a single-center population-based, prospective follow-up study among 7983 subjects aged 55 years or older. Baseline measurements included ultrasonographic evaluation of the vessel wall characteristics of the carotid arteries, that is, assessment of the presence of atherosclerotic lesions, measurement of common… CONTINUE READING
