Abstract

A high proportion of diabetic subjects are referred with atherosclerotic disease and higher risk for cardiovascular events. Rapid expansion of the use of non-invasive coronary and peripheral arteries imaging, facilitated by technological advances, have found diagnostic and prognostic roles in this population. This review, which includes important and actual works, guidelines, and algorithms on cardiovascular disease in the diabetic population, indicates mandatory screening for arterial disease in these patients in light of their appropriate management.
