BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Carotid artery stenosis is one of the major causes of ischemic strokes. However, degree of stenosis is not always correlated with frequency of ischemic strokes. The aim of this study was to evaluate relationships between high intensity signal (HIS) in the carotid plaques on maximum intensity projection (MIP) images detected by routine three-dimensional time-of-flight magnetic resonance angiography (3D-TOF MRA) and ischemic strokes in the patients with low-grade stenosis… CONTINUE READING
