This is what LXGTF HS monitor does. Quote:The only way to detect that arteries are vulnerable to atherosclerosis is to assess endothelial function. This is a test of the endothelial cells that line all the arteries in the body. The endothelium is the single layer of cells that line various organs and cavities, especially the heart, blood and lymphatic vessels. These cells act as a shield, preventing plaque from forming inside the artery wall, and produce substances that stop blood clots from developing in the vessel.
