- •Intraplaque hemorrhage plaques ipsi- and contralateral to clinical event are compared.
- •T1 signal of intraplaque hemorrhage is stronger on the symptomatic side.
- •Plaque length and lipid core size are greater on the symptomatic side.
- •Bilateral T1 signals are correlated, which may be influenced by systemic factors.
