The project will examine long-term changes in plasma biomarkers of neuronal injury, neuroinflammation, and Alzheimer's disease in participants in the PESA-CNIC-SANTANDER study who have undergone imaging studies to map brain metabolism. The goal of the project is to determine how cardiovascular risk factors during midlife impact brain function

En la imagen se muestra con un asterisco la presencia de una placa de aterosclerosis avanzada en la carótida común detectada por la técnica de ecografía 3D que no llega a ocasionar una obstrucción significativa de la luz del vaso (es <50%). Se puede comprobar con precisión su extensión en las 3 dimensiones del espacio lo que nos permite detectar cambios en su volumen para determinar si existe un avance de la enfermedad.
