Grant Title: Magnetic resonance imaging based calf muscle perfusion to assess patients with symptomatic peripheral artery disease (Subcontract) [Taylor]
Funding Agency: NIH – National Institutes of Health
Description: We will enroll patients with clinically significant atherosclerotic carotid artery disease who will undergo either carotid endarterectomy or carotid artery stenting; carotid artery imaging characteristics and ACAC morphology will be determined in computed tomography (CT) scans obtained preprocedure, and tissues collected from patients who undergo carotid endarterectomy will be imaged with high-resolution micro-CT and magnetic resonance imaging.
