Stroke is a major cause of morbidity and mortality, with carotid disease representing an important contributory risk factor. This book is about the pathogenesis and management of carotid disease with specific focus on the role imaging has to play in the early recognition of symptomatic and asymptomatic disease as well as the treatment of the developed condition. Technological advances in imaging modalities now allow detailed analysis of the disease progression, the prediction of critical events leading to a stroke, as well as the identification of the most effective surgical or other interventional treatments. This book should be read by neurologists, cardiologists, vascular surgeons, neurosurgeons and radiologists involved in the care of patients with carotid disease, and also by researchers involved in the development of new therapeutic techniques and drugs.

• Provides comprehensive coverage of the widest range of imaging modalities. • Critically reviews the roles these can play in recognising and managing carotid disease. • Written to be accessible to clinicians, surgeons and researchers. • Highly illustrated throughout with contributions from the world's leading experts in this field

'This is a very useful book. … an excellent monograph on a rapidly developing topic which it covers well.' Neuroradiology

'Another quality of the book is the adequate balance among the 35 chapters. The editors should be praised for producing a pleasing consistency of style. Production is excellent with helpful tables and good illustrations. A welcome list of abbreviations used through the work can be found at the beginning of the book.' Pediatric Radiology

'This book provides a comprehensive review of the current state of imaging both for the assessment of carotid stenosis, and particularly of the methods and rationale for plaque imaging. The reviews are well-written and up to date with comprehensive references. … I think this book is of particular value to departments and practitioners that have a large carotid practice, particularly those who want to develop or research imaging of plaque morphology.' Clinical Radiology
