Local hemodynamic forces in atherosclerotic carotid arteries are thought to trigger cellular and molecular mechanisms that determine plaque vulnerability. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) has emerged as a powerful tool to characterize human carotid atherosclerotic plaque composition and morphology, and to identify plaque features shown to be key… CONTINUE READING
