Carotid arterial intima-media thickness measured with B-mode ultrasonography is used as a noninvasive end point (that is, an outcome) in epidemiologic studies and clinical trials to gauge progression and regression of atherosclerosis [1-3]. As such, carotid arterial intima-media thickness, expressed as a single measurement (in millimeters) or a rate of change (in millimeters per year), is used as a surrogate end point for atherosclerosis of the coronary artery. However, its relation to coronary… CONTINUE READING
