Relation of Framingham risk score to subclinical atherosclerosis evaluated across three arterial sites.


The Framingham risk score (FRS) is widely used in clinical practice to identify subjects at high risk for developing coronary heart disease. However, FRS may not accurately identify subjects at risk.
