The work reveals critical understandings about the natural history of plaque, the correlation of vascular lesions and clinical syndromes, and the utility of new imaging methods. Diagnostic imaging atherosclerotic prevention and treatment will be shaped by these new modalities. Continuous scrutiny by the Committee on Vascular Lesions is culminating in scientific meetings every few years and is summarised in published statements. The present statement - The Vulnerable Atherosclerotic Plaque: Understanding, Identification & Modification - is the second of these documents to focus on atherosclerosis pathogenesis and pathological clinical implications.

As a multi-disciplinary resource, this book edited by Valentin Fuster, MD, PhD, chairman of the committee, consists of twenty four chapters written by experts in mechanical and engineering, pathology, neurology, imaging, clinical and vascular biology, physics, radiology and surgery. This invaluable reference tool identifies problems, perspectives and critical new questions for evaluation and dissemination.
