Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in Atherosclerotic Disease of the Carotid Artery
Atherosclerotic Disease is a buildup of fat, cholesterol, and other substances on artery walls. An MRI is a way to see places that may have buildup. Research is needed to improve the way an MRI automatically and accurately sees inside the artery walls. The information we gain may aid future patients.
