To the Editor: Dr Den Ruijter and colleagues1 for the USE-Intima-Media Thickness (USE-IMT) project presented a meta-analysis of participant level data on common carotid artery intima-media thickness (CIMT) measurements in cardiovascular disease risk prediction. The article, however, included a potentially misleading statement that warrants clarification and raises additional questions.
