  • Clinical examination of the carotid arterial system has traditionally been used as a non-specific screening tool of atherosclerotic pathology. Because it has not yet been shown to delineate the precise location and grade of stenosis, further imaging modalities, such as duplex ultrasound, digital subtraction angiography, computed tomography and magnetic resonance, are currently used to obtain this information. These, however, have been shown to be susceptible to inaccuracies. Herein, a new… CONTINUE READING
