Figure 4: Intima-media thickness (IMT) measurement in common carotid artery (CCA) and various types of plaques. IMT is measured on the far wall in distal CCA. Panel (a) shows a heterogeneous plaque with a shadow artifact (arrow). Panel (b) shows a homogeneous plaque with a possible ulcerated surface. A homogeneous plaque is seen in panel (c) with a dark area within, suggesting intraplaque hemorrhage
