Objective: To compare systemic arterial inflammation in subjects with recent ischaemic stroke or TIA and controls with prior cerebrovascular disease. Methods: Systemic arterial inflammation was prospectively measured by18F-fluorodeoxygluose positron emission tomography in 11 cases with recent ischaemic stroke or TIA, and 11 sex matched controls with prior cerebrovascular disease. Results: Hot spots (both carotid and non-carotid) of localised18FDG uptake were found in more than half of all...[Show more]
