Brief Description of Project: The Dallas Heart Study is an ethnically diverse, population based study of early markers of cardiovascular disease. As part of this study we have performed over 2000 brain imaging studies in between hypertension, left ventricular hypertrophy and structural markers of silent cerebrovascular disease as detected on magnetic resonance imaging of the brain.
