Cardiovascular risk

Assessing cardiovascular risk

Optimal cardiovascular risk assessment allows doctors to adjust treatment in high-risk patients at an early stage.

Risk scores for cardiovascular events

Clinical guidelines in most countries prescribe physicians to use cardiovascular risk scores such as Framingham, UKPDS risk engine and SCORE. These risk scores use multiple clinical measurements (blood tests) and calculate the cardiovascular risk of patient based on that. In daily practive these risk scores are rarely used by physicians because it requires a number of time consuming and expensive laboratory tests and the clinical performance is moderate.
