Besides the decrease in cerebral blood flow perfusion induced by arteriostenosis, induction of cerebral ischemia symptoms, instability and abscission of plaques at stenosis sites, thrombopoiesis, and abscission and occlusion of cerebral vessels at distal ends induced by irregular plaque surfaces are also closely related to intracranial and extracranial atherosclerosis.
Accuracy for diagnosing arteriostenosis by using black-blood and bright-blood magnetic resonance imaging analysis
Moreover, Le et al .'s study has demonstrated that high-resolution "bright blood" and "black blood" sequential MRI analysis is capable of the accurate analysis of the ingredients in atherosclerotic plaques and the evaluation of the severity of carotid arteriostenosis. In addition, in the latest version of international tumor, node, and metastasis (TNM) classification, the differentiation of clinical TNM stage for a range of cancers is on the basis of MRI findings instead of CT.
