WHY VASCULARIS

VASCULARIS is the most innovative and effective way to manage cardiovascular risk. Using validated tools for noninvasive measurement of sub clinical atherosclerosis, such as the Total Carotid Plaque Area, has the potential to change the paradigm for evaluation and treatment of elevated cardiovascular risk in people.

ABOUT VASCULARIS

HISTORY

In 2003, Dr. David Spence implemented a new approach to management of patients with vascular disease based on plaque measurement (1). This approach markedly reduced the risk of the highest risk patients, with asymptomatic carotid stenosis: the two-year risk of stroke was reduced from 8.8% to 1%, and the two-year risk of myocardial infarction was reduced by this approach from 7.6% to 1%.

As Dr. Spence has said, "Trying to treat arteries without measuring plaque is like trying to treat hypertension without measuring blood pressure."

MISSION

To be the most innovative and effective way to manage cardiovascular risk.
