BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Calcified arterial plaque has been proposed as a subclinical marker of atherosclerosis. We compared it to a well-validated surrogate--carotid intimal medial thickness (IMT). METHODS Calcified arterial plaque was measured in 2 vascular beds (coronary and carotid) by computed tomography, and common carotid artery IMT was measured by B-mode ultrasonography, in 438 participants. RESULTS Calcium was positively associated with IMT (r=0.36 for coronary and r=0.45 for carotid… CONTINUE READING
