3D angiogram showing the carotid arteries in the neck of a person who had a stroke (acute onset of neurological deficit). The carotid arteries are in the neck and supply blood flow to the brain. The image shows a very severe narrowing of the internal carotid artery in a patient with arteriosclerosis. This patient suffered a stroke as a result of arteriosclerotic plaque buildup in the arteries which leads to the severe stenosis (narrowing).
