Not only is the degree of stenosis important for optimal treatment of carotid stenosis, plaque characteristics, are also important factors to be considered. Various modalities of plaque imaging using ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and positron emission tomography (PET) have been introduced to clinical practice recently.
