Abstract / Description:
The Dallas Heart Study (DHS) was initiated in 2000 with funding from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation and with the primary goal of improving the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of heart disease. From 2000 to 2002, 6,000 residents of Dallas County, aged 18 to 65 years, completed a detailed medical survey. Participants over age 30 (n=3,500) were invited to provide a blood sample and to undergo comprehensive state-of-the-art imaging studies to assess plaque buildup in the blood vessels of the heart, the size and function of the heart, and the amount and distribution of body fat.
