Association between carotid plaque enhancement shown by multidetector CT angiography and histologically validated microvessel density
European Radiology, 05/15/2012
Saba L et al. – Results of this preliminary study suggest that carotid plaque enhancement (CPE) might be associated with the microvessel density. Histological analysis seems to demonstrate that the degree of intra–plaque neo–vascularisation is statistically associated with CPE.
