The scope of the project is a multiscientific view of atherosclerosis in the carotid artery by investigating environmental causes and clinical manifestations of the disease. Specifically, the project attempts to (a) identify novel quantitative indicators for the diagnosis of atherosclerosis by associating biochemical, biomechanical and imaging parameters, (b) achieve a personalized management of the disease and (c) develop an integrated information system that can be used in clinical practice to improve health services.
