Sadat, U., Li, Z. Y., Graves, M. J., Tang, T. Y., & Gillard, J. H. (2009) Noninvasive imaging of atheromatous carotid plaques. Nature Clinical Practice Cardiovascular Medicine, 6(3), pp. 200-209.
Atherothrombosis is a systemic disease of the arterial wall that affects the carotid, coronary, and peripheral vascular beds, and the aorta. This condition is associated with complications such as stroke, myocardial infarction, and peripheral vascular disease, which usually result from unstable atheromatous plaques. The study of atheromatous plaques can provide useful information about the natural history and progression of the disease, and aid in the selection of appropriate treatment. Plaque imaging can be crucial in achieving this goal. In this Review, we focus on the various noninvasive imaging techniques that are being used for morphological and functional assessment of carotid atheromatous plaques in the clinical setting.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
