Vulnerable plaque - Multi-parametric US
1. Carotid ultrasound is nowadays a multi-parametric technique incorporating a spectrum of techniques, all contributing equally to the final diagnosis. Different techniques provide different information regarding degree of stenosis, plaque morphology, plaque composition and neovascularization. All this multi-faceted information is well suited to study the complex entity of carotid plaque vulnerability. Information regarding plaque vulnerability should always be incorporated in the final report of a carotid ultrasound examination.
2. Carotid plaque features associated with vulnerability and thus increased risk for stroke include: hypo echogenicity, a large juxtaluminal black area, ulcerated plaque surface, increased intra-plaque neovascularization on contrast-enhanced ultrasound or other flow visualization techniques and low shear-wave velocity within the plaque core.
3. Plaques associated with low risk for neurologic symptoms include plaques which are predominantly calcified, have a smooth surface, show no superficial ulcerations, no intra-plaque neovascularity on any technique and show increased shear wave velocities on elastography.
