Brief description Virtually everyone's life has been affected by cardiovascular disease (CVD) in some way. There are no routine community-based tests to identify asymptomatic CVD due to current tests being invasive, expensive, time-consuming or high radiation exposure. A low cost, very low radiation test from existing machines used for osteoporosis screening can assess a measure of asymptomatic CVD. This fellowship seeks to develop this test for community-based screening strategies.
