Caption: Atherosclerosis in neck arteries. 3D coloured computed tomography (CT) scan and angiogram of the neck arteries (orange) and bones in a 59-year-old man with atherosclerosis. The scan shows the carotid blood vessels in a left oblique view. The irregular appearance of the arterial walls, and areas of narrowing, indicate the presence of atheromatous plaques, deposits of cholesterol and fats on the blood vessel walls. This narrowing (stenosis) is a risk factor for strokes. For a version of this scan showing the narrowed areas with arrows, see image C038/8565.
