To assess atherosclerotic changes in the descending aorta (descending thoracic aorta, suprarenal and infrarenal abdominal aorta) and the common iliac artery, 101 aortographically normal subjects were studied using an 8 F, 15-MHz intravascular ultrasound catheter (IVUS). Atherosclerotic changes were evaluated using the atheroma score (extent score of atheroma; ESA), the calcification score (extent score of calcification; ESC), and % area stenosis (% ST). We separated the intraluminal area of the IVUS images into eight equal segments when we observed an atheromatous plaque (or calcification). ESA or ESC were then evaluated on a scale of 0 to 8 on each sectional plane, according to their circumferential arc, and % ST was calculated as ratio of intraluminal area to the area of the adventitia. Atherosclerotic changes, ESA, and % ST were greater in the lower part of the descending aorta and the common iliac artery than in the thoracic aorta (p
