Abstract

To find clinically relevant estimates of the accuracy of noninvasive imaging-Doppler ultrasonography (US), computed tomographic (CT) angiography, magnetic resonance (MR) angiography, and contrast material-enhanced MR angiography-in diagnosing both severe and moderate symptomatic carotid artery stenosis; to ascertain the effect of prespecified clinical factors and clinical setting on diagnostic accuracy; and to estimate the probability of agreement between two noninvasive tests.
