Neuro Imaging

Neuro imaging produces images of the structure or activity of the nervous system, usually the brain. It uses techniques like magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computerized tomography (CT).

IPH, intraplaque hemorrhage, diabetic patients, stroke risk, 3-D MRI

Image A shows the 3-D MRI intraplaque hemorrhage (IPH) sequence as acquired in the coronal plane. The red dotted line indicates the level at which the reformatted axial plane, B, was obtained. C shows the section of the right carotid artery with a region of high signal consistent with IPH. Contours are drawn for the outer wall (green) and lumen (red) with the area of IPH in this segment shaded blue in D.
