Correlation of Antemortem Angiography with Pathology

  • C. Miller Fisher
  • James A. DeWeese


In this workshop the long-range focus is on the use of arteriography in the study of the biology of atherosclerosis--its origin, evolution, and response to therapeutic measures. Information on the subject is meager, and to approach the problem we are obliged to turn to the vast experience of clinical radiology and the use of angiography in the diagnosis and treatment of vascular disease.
