With the improvement of living standards, the incidence of atherosclerosis is also increasing. Atherosclerosis is an arterial disease characterized by thickening and hardening of the arterial wall, loss of elasticity and narrowing of the lumen, and accumulation of lipids on the arterial intima, named for its yellow appearance. It can cause coronary artery disease, stroke, peripheral artery disease, and renal failure. Carotid plaque is a manifestation of carotid atherosclerosis. The superficial location of the carotid artery is conducive to ultrasound observation and can serve as a window for early monitoring of atherosclerosis.
If symptoms such as dizziness, blurred vision, headache, arm or leg weakness or numbness, or memory difficulties occur, it may also be caused by carotid artery blockage. Ultrasound scanning is the preferred non-invasive diagnostic method for carotid plaque or carotid artery blockage with a high diagnostic rate.
Focus & Fusion Healthcare high-resolution ultrasound can clearly display the intima, media, and adventitia layers of the arterial wall, accurately measure the IMT thickness, measure the degree of stenosis, evaluate the hemodynamics of the blood vessels, significantly improve the quality of ultrasound images, and enhance the accuracy and effectiveness of the evaluation.
