3-D MRI Technique Helps Radiologists Detect High-Risk Carotid Disease, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre Study
Published: Sep 17, 2008
EurekAlert! -- OAK BROOK, Ill. – Canadian researchers have used three-dimensional magnetic resonance imaging (3-D MRI) to accurately detect bleeding within the walls of diseased carotid arteries, a condition that may lead to a stroke. The results of the study published in the October issue of Radiology suggest the technique may prove to be a useful screening tool for patients at high risk for stroke.
