Abstract

Atherosclerosis is the underlying process that causes the most death and disability worldwide.1 It is the cause of myocardial infarctions, peripheral vascular disease, and a large proportion of strokes, and contributes to much of heart failure. There are several ways to quantify the burden of atherosclerosis, and quantifying change in atherosclerotic burden over time may be useful. These include risk stratification, evaluation of the contribution of risk factors (new and old) to atherosclerosis, evaluation of a patient's response to therapy, genetic research, and evaluation of potential new therapies for atherosclerosis.
