    Samenvatting

    Carotid artery stenosis is a leading, treatable risk factor for stroke. Until recently, risk prediction has, for the main part, been based on the degree of lumen narrowing which does not reflect our actual insight into the etiology of arterio-embolic stroke. The risk of carotid artery stenosis is in fact defined by the texture and morphology of the atherosclerotic lesion. Both B-mode ultrasound and MRI can depict these features and have considerable potential for detection of vulnerable plaques.
