How does coronary atherosclerosis progress, and what are the key features of vulnerable plaque?

  • Sponsored by

  • Overview

    Coronary atherosclerosis is a chronic condition that can start early in life, and plaques gradually and progressively accumulate in the walls of arteries over decades. Plaques are diverse, and there are quantitative and qualitative aspects of the plaque. And it’s these qualitative aspects that make a plaque more vulnerable. So what are the key features and impacts of a vulnerable plaque, and what are the imaging modalities that can be used to look at changes in plaque burden and composition? Find out the answers to these and other key questions with Dr. Robert Hegele from Western University and Professor Stephen Nicholls from Monash University.
