American College of Cardiology Conference: At the American College of Cardiology Conference, an exciting abstract from Scientists at the US National Institute of Health (NIH) was presented showing a statistically-significant reduction in FAI™ associated with anti-inflammatory treatment for psoriasis. Psoriasis is commonly associated with increased...

THE LANCET: Coronary artery inflammation inhibits adipogenesis in adjacent perivascular fat. A novel imaging biomarker—the perivascular fat attenuation index (FAI)—captures coronary inflammation by mapping spatial changes of perivascular fat attenuation on coronary computed tomography angiography (CTA). However, the ability of the perivascular FAI to predict...

SCIENCE TRANSLATIONAL MEDICINE: Early detection of vascular inflammation would allow deployment of targeted strategies for the prevention or treatment of multiple disease states. Because vascular inflammation is not detectable with commonly used imaging modalities, we hypothesized that phenotypic changes in perivascular adipose tissue (PVAT) induced by...
