I like buying domain names.
My latest purchase is trackmyplaque.com. No site up yet (clicking should redirect), but it has potential I think.
Now I just need to find an imaging technique that allows me to do just that - follow an atherosclerotic plaque as it regresses under the effects of therapy. There are in fact several ways of doing this already - ultrasound of the carotid arteries, MRI of the carotids and aorta and of course intravascular ultrasound for the coronary arteries. These all provide useful structural information, and regression may be linked to future cardiovascular risk reduction. Wouldn't it be useful to have a global vascular score for each patient? Yep, I also own cardioscore.pro. And hearthealth.tv. Told you I like domains!
But it seems that the functional characteristics of the plaque may change in a beneficial way before the intervention affects the structure of the lesion, and it is believed that inflammation imaging, perhaps using FDG PET, might give an earlier readout of treatment efficacy (or otherwise) than waiting for wall thickness changes.
I use Hover to buy my domains. I used to use GoDaddy, but the constant upselling at checkout was annoying.
I have a 10% discount code for this of you that want to try Hover. Message me on Twitter and I'll send it to you.
