Examining Heart Attack Risk: Surprising Look at Framingham Risk Scores (NHANES Data From More Than 6,000 Persons)

About 25 percent of all heart attacks or sudden cardiac deaths in the United States occur in individuals thought to be at low risk.

Interventional radiologists can help improve the accuracy of cardiovascular risk prediction that could significantly impact public health.
