Ultrasonic tissue characterization of atheromatous plaques using a high resolution real time scanner.


Atheromatous plaques obtained at autopsies and surgical carotid endarterectomy specimens were scanned in a water bath with an 8 MHz high resolution real time instrument. The findings were correlated with histology at corresponding sites in each specimen. Fatty streaks were not detectable by ultrasound. Small fibro fatty plaques appeared as localized… (More)
