Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Cardiology

William B. Kannel mostly deals with Framingham Heart Study, Internal medicine, Cardiology, Framingham Risk Score and Blood pressure. He combines subjects such as Stroke, Proportional hazards model, Cohort and Risk factor with his study of Framingham Heart Study. In his study, which falls under the umbrella issue of Internal medicine, Cohort study and QRISK is strongly linked to Surgery.

His research integrates issues of Diabetes mellitus and Left ventricular hypertrophy in his study of Cardiology. The concepts of his Framingham Risk Score study are interwoven with issues in Epidemiology, Sudden death, Mortality rate, Blood serum and Physical therapy. William B. Kannel has included themes like Prospective cohort study and Obesity in his Blood pressure study.

His most cited work include:

  • Prediction of Coronary Heart Disease Using Risk Factor Categories (7684 citations)
  • Atrial fibrillation as an independent risk factor for stroke: the Framingham Study. (5307 citations)
  • Prognostic Implications of Echocardiographically Determined Left Ventricular Mass in the Framingham Heart Study (4912 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Internal medicine, Framingham Heart Study, Cardiology, Framingham Risk Score and Blood pressure are his primary areas of study. His Internal medicine study frequently draws parallels with other fields, such as Endocrinology. His study in Framingham Heart Study is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Epidemiology, Cohort study, Surgery, Incidence and Cohort.

William B. Kannel interconnects Diabetes mellitus and Left ventricular hypertrophy in the investigation of issues within Cardiology. The study incorporates disciplines such as Intermittent claudication, Prospective cohort study, Atrial fibrillation, Physical therapy and Heart disease in addition to Framingham Risk Score. His Blood pressure research includes themes of Body mass index and Obesity.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Internal medicine (80.38%)
  • Framingham Heart Study (70.82%)
  • Cardiology (60.41%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2003-2020)?

  • Internal medicine (80.38%)
  • Framingham Heart Study (70.82%)
  • Cardiology (60.41%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

William B. Kannel mostly deals with Internal medicine, Framingham Heart Study, Cardiology, Framingham Risk Score and Risk factor. His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Diabetes mellitus and Endocrinology. William B. Kannel has researched Framingham Heart Study in several fields, including Stroke, Epidemiology, Surgery and Cohort study.

His Cardiology study combines topics in areas such as Mortality rate, Proportional hazards model and Left ventricular hypertrophy. As a member of one scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Framingham Risk Score, focusing on Cohort and, on occasion, Offspring and Menopause. The various areas that William B. Kannel examines in his Risk factor study include Absolute risk reduction and Metabolic syndrome.

Between 2003 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • General Cardiovascular Risk Profile for Use in Primary Care The Framingham Heart Study (4209 citations)
  • Development of a risk score for atrial fibrillation (Framingham Heart Study): a community-based cohort study (727 citations)
  • The Lifetime Risk of Stroke Estimates From the Framingham Study (537 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Diabetes mellitus

His main research concerns Framingham Heart Study, Internal medicine, Risk factor, Cardiology and Framingham Risk Score. His Framingham Heart Study study incorporates themes from Epidemiology, Incidence, Surgery, Cohort study and Gerontology. His study brings together the fields of Endocrinology and Internal medicine.

His studies in Risk factor integrate themes in fields like Stroke, Absolute risk reduction and Cohort. His work deals with themes such as Mortality rate and Heart rate, which intersect with Cardiology. His research investigates the connection with Framingham Risk Score and areas like Body mass index which intersect with concerns in Weight loss, Algorithm and Confidence interval.
