Learning objectives


There are mainly six points which are highlighted in this presentation:

  • Stroke and Carotid Atherosclerosis highly correlated; in fact carotid plaques are responsible for 25-30% of the strokes
  • Level of stenosis is not the only indicator of plaque vulnerability
  • Neovessels alleged to be associated with plaque vulnerability
  • There are mainly two ways to detect the level of noevascularisation non-invasively: Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Ultrasound (US)
  • The techniques which have been used for MRI and US imaging  of neovascularisation
  • Which of these used techniques seems more applicable for neovascularisation detecting
