Use of contrast-enhancement and high-resolution 3D black-blood MR Imaging to identify inflammation in rabbit atherosclerotic plaques

Abstract

Methods Ten atherosclerotic rabbits and three normal control rabbits underwent high-resolution 3D contrast-enhanced black-blood MRI. MR images and the corresponding histopathological sections were divided into four quadrants. Plaque composition was analyzed for each quadrant according to histopathological (percent of lipid-rich, fibrous, macrophage area and… (More)
