Relation between adolescent cardiovascular risk factors and carotid intima-media echogenicity in healthy young adults: The atherosclerosis risk in young adults (ARYA) study.

Abstract:

Background

Echogenicity is an ultrasound measure that reflects arterial wall composition. In adult populations, lower carotid intima-media echogenicity relates to an unfavorable cardiovascular risk burden yet appears to reflect a different aspect of arterial wall remodeling than carotid intima-media thickness (CIMT). Since studies on carotid intima-media echogenicity earlier in life are lacking, we investigated associations between adolescent cardiovascular risk factors and young ...
