Imaging as a Biomarker in Cardiology (CAIN1)

This presentation focuses on how MRI techniques can be used to examine carotid artery diseases.  Dr. Moody aims to convey how characterisation of vessel walls can be achieved by overlaying various weighted MR sequences to give a full picture of vessel wall disease. Imaging of the end organ effects can also be used to determine biomarkers through local cause, distal effect analysis, local disease disruption and distal end organ effects.
