  • 3T MRI investigation of cardiac left ventricular structure and function in a UK population : he Tayside screening for the prevention of cardiac events (TASCFORCE) study 

    Gandy, Stephen J.; Lambert, Matthew; Belch, Jill; Cavin, Ian; Crowe, Elena; Littleford, Roberta; MacFarlane, Jennifer A; Matthew, Shona Z; Martin, Patricia; Nicholas, R. Stephen; Struthers, Allan; Sullivan, Frank; Waugh, Shelley A.; White, Richard D.; Weir-McCall, Jonathan R.; Houston, J. Graeme (2016-11) - Journal article
    Purpose : To scan a volunteer population using 3.0T magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MRI of the left ventricular (LV) structure and function in healthy volunteers has been reported extensively at 1.5T. Materials and Methods ...
  • Development and validation of a path length calculation for carotid–femoral pulse wave velocity measurement. A TASCFORCE, SUMMIT, and Caerphilly collaborative venture 

    Weir-McCall, Jonathan R.; Brown, Liam; Summersgill, Jennifer; Talarczyk, Piotr; Bonnici-Mallia, Michael; Chin, Sook C.; Khan, Faisel; Struthers, Allan D.; Sullivan, Frank; Colhoun, Helen M.; Shore, Angela C.; Aizawa, Kunihiko; Groop, Leif; Nilsson, Jan; Cockcroft, John R.; McEniery, Carmel M.; Wilkinson, Ian B.; Ben-Shlomo, Yoav; Houston, J. Graeme (2018-03-19) - Journal article
    Current distance measurement techniques for pulse wave velocity (PWV) calculation are susceptible to intercenter variability. The aim of this study was to derive and validate a formula for this distance measurement. Based ...
  • Left ventricular noncompaction : anatomical phenotype or distinct cardiomyopathy? 

    Weir-McCall, Jonathan R.; Yeap, Phey Ming; Papagiorcopulo, Carla; Fitzgerald, Kerrie; Gandy, Stephen J.; Lambert, Matthew; Belch, Jill J. F.; Cavin, Ian; Littleford, Roberta; Macfarlane, Jennifer A.; Matthew, Shona Z.; Nicholas, R. Stephen; Struthers, Allan D.; Sullivan, Frank; Waugh, Shelley A.; White, Richard D.; Houston, J. Graeme (2016-11-15) - Journal article
    Background:  There is considerable overlap between left ventricular noncompaction (LVNC) and other cardiomyopathies. LVNC has been reported in up to 40% of the general population, raising questions about whether it is a ...
  • Prevalence of unrecognized myocardial infarction in a low-intermediate risk asymptomatic cohort and its relation to systemic atherosclerosis 

    Weir-McCall, Jonathan R.; Fitzgerald, Kerrie; Papagiorcopulo, Carla J.; Gandy, Stephen J.; Lambert, Matthew; Belch, Jill J. F.; Cavin, Ian; Littleford, Roberta; Macfarlane, Jennifer A.; Matthew, Shona Z.; Nicholas, R. Stephen; Struthers, Allan D.; Sullivan, Frank M.; Waugh, Shelley A.; White, Richard D.; Houston, J. Graeme (2016-08-22) - Journal article
    Aims :  Unrecognized myocardial infarctions (UMIs) have been described in 19-30% of the general population using late gadolinium enhancement (LGE) on cardiac magnetic resonance. However, these studies have focused on an ...
  • Systemic arteriosclerosis is associated with left ventricular remodeling but not atherosclerosis : a TASCFORCE study 

    Weir-McCall, Jonathan R.; Lambert, Matthew; Gandy, Stephen J.; Belch, Jill J. F.; Cavin, Ian; Henderson, Shelley A.; Littleford, Roberta; Macfarlane, Jennifer A.; Matthew, Shona Z.; Nicholas, R. Stephen; Struthers, Allan D.; Sullivan, Frank; White, Richard D.; Houston, J. Graeme (2018-01-30) - Journal article
    Background: Arteriosclerosis (arterial stiffening) is associated with future cardiovascular events, with this effect postulated to be due to its effect on cardiac afterload, atherosclerosis (plaque formation) progression ...
