This study investigated the feasibility and accuracy of the maximum wall thickness(MWT), the lipid-rich necrotic core percentage(%LRNC) and the carotid atherosclerosis (CAS) score to predict stroke and diagnose vulnerable plaques. Our results showed that quantitative lipid-rich necrotic core can effectively diagnose vulnerable plaques and predict the risk of stroke, in addition, the CAS score can simply grade carotid artery plaques and provide a basis for clinical diagnosis and treatment.
