Diabetes patients whose full-body MRIs showed "vascular changes" had a 20% risk of heart attack or stroke at three years and a 35% risk at six years compared with those whose results did not reveal changes, a study indicated. The findings in the journal Radiology suggest that undergoing MRI may help predict the likelihood of cardiac or cerebrovascular events in diabetes patients, researchers said.
