Various methods have been used to quantify atherosclerosis, beginning in the mid-1980s with ultrasound measurement of carotid intima–media thickness (IMT), and going on to coronary calcification assessed by electron-beam CT, measurement of carotid plaque by ultrasound, and measurement of carotid wall thickness by MRI. In recent years, it has become clear that carotid IMT, coronary calcification and carotid plaque reflect biologically and genetically different aspects of the atherosclerotic… Expand
