This chapter presents methods that can be used for evaluation of high cerebrovascular risk using the texture and morphological appearance of plaques in combination with a number of clinical factors for the estimation of the stroke risk. Images and results presented are based on the analysis of images that were collected through a multicenter cohort study of patients with asymptomatic ICA called Asymptomatic Carotid Stenosis and Risk of Stroke (ACSRS).
