Research summary

Acute coronary syndromes (ACS) are the leading cause of mortality and morbidity in diabetic patients and is predominantly caused by plaque rupture. Heart disease death rates among adults with diabetes mellitus(DM) are 2 to 4 times higher than the rates for adults without DM. Therefore, an accurate, reliable approach to early risk stratification of atherosclerotic lesions is highly desired for guiding treatment decisions.The objective of the proposed project is to develop a magnetic resonance(MR) delayed-enhancement vessel wall imaging technique to stratify high-risk diabetic patients.
