Abstract

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. Here, we provide an overview of the recent progress of such modalities in relation to their clinical significance and future perspective.
