  Purpose

The overall goal of this study is to use MRI to:

  • Examine the relationship between known risk factors for cardiovascular disease and coronary artery wall thickness;
  • Examine the relationship between coronary artery wall thickness and other markers of subclinical coronary atherosclerosis, such as carotid wall thickness and coronary calcium scores; and,
  • Examine the feasibility of measuring the progression of coronary artery wall thickness over time in a subset of participants.
