Correlative clinicopathologic reports of atherosclerosis pose precise questions with admire to either luminal and plaque features which are addressed during this quantity. An outdated observa­ tion, in keeping with the exam of arterial casts, recommended that the so-called nodose lesion of atherosclerosis will be in the beginning flattened into the wall of a weakened, dilated artery, instead of raised into the lumen. this can be now totally proven in vivo by way of ultrasonic and different imaging suggestions. The morbid anatomist is challenged anew to explain lesions as they're prone to ensue in vivo. to accomplish nearer correlation with usual stipulations, perfu­ sion fixation of arteries below arterial strain is turning into extra primary and has already confirmed extra legitimate quantita­ tion of the composition and configuration of lesions. whereas the noninvasive tools of B-mode and Doppler ultrasound are compatible just for the medical research of superficial arteries, corresponding to the carotid or femoral, the recent and comparatively noninvasive technique of intravenous electronic subtraction angio­ graphy will be successfully used for the exam of deep platforms, reminiscent of cerebral vessels.
