Abstract

About the book: Stroke is a major cause of morbidity and mortality, with carotid disease representing an important contributory risk factor. This book is about the pathogenesis and management of carotid disease with specific focus on the role imaging has to play in the early recognition of symptomatic and asymptomatic disease as well as the treatment of the developed condition. Technological advances in imaging modalities now allow detailed analysis of the disease progression, the prediction of critical events leading to a stroke, as well as the identification of the most effective surgical or other interventional treatments. This book should be read by neurologists, cardiologists, vascular surgeons, neurosurgeons and radiologists involved in the care of patients with carotid disease, and also by researchers involved in the development of new therapeutic techniques and drugs.
Provides comprehensive coverage of the widest range of imaging modalities;
Critically reviews the roles these can play in recognising and managing carotid disease;
Written to be accessible to clinicians, surgeons and researchers;
Highly illustrated throughout with contributions from the world's leading experts in this field.
