Paper Abstract

Stroke arrives without warning 80% of the time, leading to death and disability in a large number of the 700,000 it strikes in the USA each year. After discussing the special characteristics of screening instruments and the particular challenges of imaging the carotid artery, we report on our progress in developing an instrument to screen for the carotid stenoses that cause the majority of these strokes.
