Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) has been estimated to reduce quality of life in approximately 2 million symptomatic Americans, with millions more expected to suffer PAD-associated impairment. Anatomic characteristics of PAD lesions influence clinical outcomes, including the success and durability of endovascular treatments. Current clinical imaging modalities CTA, fluoroscopy and ultrasound do not depict plaque characterization to the extent of MRI. In this abstract we show how clinical ultra-high field protocol can be used for visualization and quantification of lesion components in peripheral artery disease.
