Cardiovascular magnetic resonance images and Evans Blue image of pig no. 8. The top panel shows reformatted in-plane images of the carotid arteries from pig no. 8. The T2-STIR, VISTA and T2prep-GE images are shown from left to right. The bottom panel displays the corresponding cross-sectional images. The right side of the figure shows ex vivo macroscopic visualization of the carotid arteries showing the vessel wall injury colored by EBD. The balloon was inflated in the right carotid artery but the tip of the catheter also induced injury within the vessel wall of the proximal part of the left carotid artery.
