The accuracy of pulse/phase inversion harmonic gray scale intermittent ultrasound in showing the morphology and surface of carotid plaques was evaluated in 15 patients with atheromatous plaques. Findings of plaque morphology and surface were in perfect agreement with surgical specimen findings as to plaque irregularities and microulcerations. Pulse/phase ultrasound during constant infusion of Levovist appeared to be a promising technique for noninvasive assessment.
