Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to create a scoring system for whole-body magnetic resonance angiography (WBMRA) that allows estimation of atherosclerotic induced luminal narrowing, and determine whether the traditional cardiovascular (CV) risk factors included in the Framingham risk score (FRS) were related to this total atherosclerotic score (TAS) in an elderly population. A group of 306 subjects, aged 70, were recruited from the general population and underwent WBMRA in a 1.5-T scanner. Three-dimensional sequences were acquired after administration of one i.v. injection of 40 ml gadodiamide. The arterial tree was divided into five territories (carotid, aorta, renal, upper and lower leg) comprising 26 vessel segments, and assessed according to its degree of stenosis or occlusion. FRS correlated to TAS (r=0.30, P < 0.0001), as well as to the atherosclerotic score for the five individual territories. Of the parameters included in the FRS, male gender (P < 0.0001), systolic blood pressure (P=0.0002), cigarette pack-years (P=0.0008) and HDL cholesterol (P=0.008) contributed to the significance. A scoring system for WBMRA was created. The significant relation towards traditional CV risk factors indicates that the proposed scoring system could be of value for assessing atherosclerotically induced luminal narrowing.

Abstract [en]

Atherosclerosis is a serious threat to public health and a major cause of morbidity and mortality. In this doctoral research, the feasibility of using whole-body magnetic resonance angiography (WBMRA) was studied as a principal aim both in patients and in an epidemiological setting. Secondary aims were to create a score for assessment of the degree of atherosclerosis with the use of WBMRA and to investigate the correlation between this score and various cardiovascular (CV) risk factors.

WBMRA was found feasible both in atherosclerotic patients and in an elderly population from the Prospective Investigation of the Vasculature in Uppsala Seniors (PIVUS). All subjects except one completed the examination without any adverse events. A large proportion (93-99%) of the vessel segments could be evaluated and the results of a smaller comparison between WBMRA and conventional invasive x-ray angiography were reasonable regarding the assessed degree of maximum stenosis or occlusion. This indicates the safety and robustness of the WBMRA method.

Unsuspected significant vascular abnormalities were found in patients with atherosclerotic symptoms and significant vascular abnormalities were present in elderly subjects without any self-reported vascular disease. The prevalence rates of vascular abnormalities in the carotid, renal, and inflow and runoff arteries of the lower limbs were estimated in an elderly population. A total atherosclerotic score (TAS) reflecting the degree of luminal narrowing was created for the WBMRA method and was significantly related to Framingham risk score (FRS) and to the amount of abdominal visceral adipose tissue, interleukin-6, and leptin and was inversely significantly related to adiponectin.

Studies with outcome data of the PIVUS cohort are needed for further validation of the WBMRA method and to determine whether TAS can be used as an adjunct for CV risk assessment. Meanwhile, the correlation with FRS indicates that TAS could be of value for this purpose.
