Carotid artery imaging for secondary stroke prevention: both imaging modality and rapid access to imaging are important.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Patients with transient ischemic attack require carotid imaging to diagnose carotid stenosis. The differing sensitivity/specificity and availability of carotid imaging methods have created uncertainty over which noninvasive method is best and whether intra-arterial angiography is still required. We evaluated the influence of carotid imaging methods on secondary stroke prevention. METHODS: We modeled the effect of different carotid imaging strategies and timing on enda...
