PURPOSE Increased intima-media thickness (IMT) is an early marker of atherosclerotic disease and several prospective studies have demonstrated that IMT is a strong predictor of cerebrovascular complications. In this paper we propose a novel method to assess IMT, called "intima media thickness variability" (IMTV) and evaluate its relationship with the… CONTINUE READING
