On MRI, FAVA demonstrates high signal intensity due to the fibrofatty
components on T1- and T2-weighted images.

Fibrolipomatous hamartomas or neural fibrolipomas are benign fibrofatty
tumors that arise from the epineurium, making these tumors difficult to resect (2).
Noninvasive approaches including computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging enable observation of fibrofatty
infiltration of the myocardium in healthy subjects and in conditions of cardiomyoptahy, states after myocardial infarction, arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia, and others (5,14-17).

The histopathology result showed necrotic acutely inflamed fibrofatty
tissue (Figure 2).

Atherosclerosis is popularly defined as an artery wall thickening triggered by accumulation of foam cells and proliferation of intimal smooth muscle cell, which results in a fibrofatty
AS is a specific form of arteriosclerosis in which an artery wall thickens as a result of invasion and accumulation of white blood cells (foam cells) and proliferation of intimal-smooth-muscle cell creating an atheromatous (fibrofatty
As a result, his penile arteries were atherosclerosed (artery wall thickened as a result of invasion and accumulation of white blood cells and proliferation of intimal-smooth-muscle cell creating an fibrofatty
plaque) preventing engorgement.
As breast development continues the fibrofatty
and glandular tissues increase.
This sub-study included 331 patients enrolled in the GLAGOV trial and explored whether Repatha produced changes in individual plaque components (dense calcium, fibrous, fibrofatty
, necrotic core) compared to placebo using virtual histology.
