Stroke is associated with unstable carotid plaque. Hence, the importance of characterizing vulnerable plaques. In my study I am using two novel imaging methods: dynamic contrast MRI and microbubble ultrasound perfusion. Images are to be analysed to detect neo-vascularisation in the plaques and correlate the results with histology when possible.
