MRI May Predict Heart Attack, Stroke in Diabetes Patients

Diabetes patients whose full-body MRIs showed "vascular changes" had a 20% risk of heart attack or stroke at three years and a 35% risk at six years compared with those whose results did not reveal changes, a study indicated. Scientists found that scanning the body with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) may be a noninvasive way to assess the cardiovascular system to see if a diabetes patient is at risk of a heart attack or stroke.
