Mouaz H. Al-Mallah, MD, MSc, will present “The Imaging Correlates of Healthy Coronary and Vascular Aging”

In the year 2030, one in every five Americans will be older than 65. Prevention of atherosclerosis in this patient population is of utmost importance. This seminar will review the clinical and imaging correlates of healthy vascular aging. Imaging tools to detect healthy vascular beds, including coronary and vascular calcium depositions and positron emission tomography coronary flow reserve, will be discussed. In addition, the impact of enhanced cardiorespiratory fitness on healthy aging will be reviewed.
