A long-term follow-up study assess if USPIO intra-plaque uptake is predictive of subsequent cerebrovascular and cardiovascular events. Sixty-two patients were followed for a median of 4 years in which 17 patients had subsequent events. Survival regression models are applied to assess if signal intensity change following USPIO is predictive of events.
