  • Overview

    Dr. James Stein, director of the Preventive Cardiology Program and the Vascular Health Screening Program at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics, discusses with host Dr. Larry Kaskel the usefulness of carotid ultrasound for the detection of cardiovascular disease in individuals that otherwise would be considered not at risk. Tune in to learn about the relationship between intima-media thickness (IMT) and heart disease, and how an IMT image of the carotid arteries can provide specific data on the individual that can be compared to the population to assess risk.
