Reliability of Carotid MRI

QUESTION: are carotid MRI's reproducible from imaging center to imaging center?

METHODS: A standardized protocol was implemented at 16 imaging sites and multiple quantitative measurements obtained.

RESULTS: Good to excellent reproducibility was observed.

IMPLICATION:  serial MRIs performed at different imaging centers appear to be reliable in monitoring the progression of carotid atherosclerotic plaques.
