Multidetector spiral computed tomography as a method of choice in diagnosis of atherosclerotic damage of the vessels in patients with abdominal obesity

The article discusses pathogenetic mechanisms underlying atherosclerotic damage of the vascular wall. Typical localizations of atherosclerotic damage of the aorta and the major arteries are presented. The significance of ultrasound methods and multidetector spiral computed tomography in diagnosis of atherosclerotic damage of the vessels in patients with abdominal obesity is shown.

Key words: atherosclerosis, multidetector spiral computed tomography, obesity, ultrasound duplex scanning.
