Caption: Atheroma plaques. Coloured 3D computed tomography (CT) scan of the interior of a coronary artery, showing atheroma plaques (fatty deposits, yellow) lining the walls. The coronary arteries are found on the surface of the heart, and supply blood to the heart muscle. Atheroma can block the arteries, leading to a heart attack (myocardial infarction, MI). Treatment is by coronary angioplasty to widen and strengthen the arteries, or a coronary artery bypass operation to graft new arteries on to the heart.
