Caption: Atheroma plaques in the aorta. X-ray of plaques of fatty deposits (atheroma, white) in the abdominal aorta, the body's main artery, in a 68-year-old patient. This view is from the front, at the level of the kidneys (seen at left and right). The plaques form as a result of a diet high in fats and cholesterols. They can induce the formation of an abnormal blood clot (thrombus), which can travel to the brain, lungs or heart with fatal consequences. Blood-thinning drugs can reduce or prevent the formation of such clots. A contrast medium has been injected into the blood to highlight the blood vessels and the plaques of atheroma, a technique known as angiography.
