Plaque density on CT, a potential marker of ischemic stroke.

Abstract : The authors sought to determine in a retrospective analysis whether carotid plaque soft TD on CT is associated with recent ischemic neurologic events. Among 141 patients (99 asymptomatic), 106 plaques with more than 50% stenosis were selected for density measurements. They found an odds ratio for neurologic events associated with a 10-point decrease in density of 1.54 (p = 0.002), showing an association between plaque density and neurologic events.
