This well-illustrated text reviews the current state of knowledge with regard to the various anatomic and physiologic methods available to identify asymptomatic patients who are at high risk to develop a future stroke. Asymptomatic Carotid Artery Stenosis is particularly targeted towards physicians involved in clinical decision making regarding revascularization of patients with asymptomatic carotid stenosis. Furthermore, the editors and contributors’ hopes and objectives are to stimulate the medical community into subjecting these methodologies to rigorous prospective clinical trials to redefine standards of care for these patients.
