Abstract

Imaging plaque morphology, in addition to luminal grading, may improve stroke risk-management by identifying structural atherosclerotic plaques alterations responsible for cerebrovascular events. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the agreement between our enhanced ultrasound (US) imaging method and high-resolution cross-sectional imaging modalities, such as multidetector-row computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), in the characterization of vulnerable plaques.
