CIMT: The CAROTID INTIMA-MEDIA THICKNESS test (CIMT) is a measure used to diagnose the extent of carotid atherosclerotic vascular disease. Like a few of our tests, this one could actually save your life.

How could a CIMT save a life, exactly?

Inflammation of the carotid artery is often an indicator of a wide range of serious conditions, including infections or autoimmune diseases.

An increase in intima-media thickness (IMT) is often recognized as one of the first structural changes to accompany atherosclerosis (the build-up of fatty deposits, often referred to as plaque) in the artery.

The general presence of thicker arteries places the patient at greater risk of:

  • Carotid artery disease
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Peripheral artery disease
  • Coronary heart disease

 

What’s the CIMT like?

The procedure is non-invasive, painless, and quick, and requires no special preparation. There is no recovery time, either! In fact, unlike standard cardiovascular testing procedures, you can probably fit the CIMT into your lunchtime.
