Values are % except as noted. The prevalence of MRI findings of any plaque hemorrhage, number of events, and annualized event rates among all subjects with MRI positive and negative findings are derived from crude event numbers provided in the source publication.

MRI = magnetic resonance imaging.

  • Averaged annualized event rates (%) are weighted by sample size.
