Recommendations for the Assessment of
Carotid Arterial Plaque by Ultrasound for the
Characterization of Atherosclerosis and
Evaluation of Cardiovascular Risk: From the
American Society of Echocardiography

In the assessment of asymptomatic atrisk patients, we suggest a stepwise approach to cardiovascular risk
stratification using plaque grading via a focused carotid vascular ultrasound and subsequent 2D or 3D plaque quantification
