ABSTRACT
The article claims that a study of temporal artery biopsies performed in Northern California had the largest and most diverse patient population of any similar study in the U.S. Speaking at the 2008 American Academy of Ophthalmology meeting, Matthew Walvick suggested that the study showed a much higher rate of temporal artery biopsies testing positive for giant cell arteritis (GCA) than a Mayo Clinic study done in the 1950s.
