The purpose of this paper is to report the results of a statistical evaluation of different methods for the detection of arteriosclerosis in diabetes mellitus. This investigation was prompted by the high and increasing incidence of vascular disease among diabetics and its influence upon mortality.
In spite of control of coma and of tuberculosis—the two major causes of death among diabetics in the past—the death rate from diabetes mellitus in large populations is still high; and mortality and morbidity data clearly indicate that cardio-vascular disease is one of the most important contributing factors. In table 1, are recorded cardiovascular conditions
