FDG-PET/CT links stress to increased cardiovascular event risk

SNMMI SmartBrief | Jan 12, 2017

Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital who used FDG-PET/CT found that people with elevated activity in the amygdala, which is associated with stress, had higher odds of having a heart attack, stroke or other cardiovascular event within the next several years, compared with those with lower amygdala activity. The findings in The Lancet, based on imaging from 293 participants, suggest chronic stress could eventually be considered an important cardiovascular disease risk factor, said researcher Dr. Ahmed Tawakol.
