Acute cerebrovascular accidents are associated with the rupture of vulnerable atherosclerotic plaques in the carotid arteries. Fibrous cap (FC) thickness has been shown to be an important predictor of plaque rupture but has been challenging to measure accurately with clinical noninvasive imaging modalities. The goals of this investigation were first, to evaluate the feasibility of using transcutaneous acoustic radiation force impulse (ARFI) ultrasound to quantify FC thickness and second, to… CONTINUE READING
