Association Between Framingham Risk Score, hsCRP and Vascular Inflammation: Analysis With 18F-Fluorodeoxyglucose Positron Emission Tomography
|ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier: NCT01139827|

Framingham risk score is well known screening tool that detect cardiovascular (CV) risk. But it is not suitable for CV risk in mild risk group. So 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) is a new imaging technique for detecting vascular inflammation within atherosclerotic plaques and hsCRP is also arising detection tool of CV risk.
The investigators are examining this association in normal and impaired glucose tolerance patients groups.
