AIM Fractal analysis provides a global assessment of vascular network architecture. We examined the relationship of retinal vascular fractal dimension (D(f)) with coronary heart disease (CHD) mortality. METHODS AND RESULTS We examined the relationship of D(f) with 14-year CHD mortality in a prospective, population-based cohort of 3303 participants aged 49 years or older. D(f) was measured from digitized fundus photographs using computer-automated methods; CHD mortality was documented from… CONTINUE READING
