BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Carotid endarterectomy (CEA) has become a routine procedure to treat symptomatic carotid artery disease and reduce the risk of recurrent cerebral ischemic events. The purpose of this study was to use an arterial spin labeling dynamic magnetic resonance angiography technique to characterize intracranial hemodynamics before and after CEA. METHODS Thirty-seven carotid artery disease patients participated in this study, of whom 24 underwent magnetic resonance imaging before… CONTINUE READING
