ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views on how noninvasive imaging techniques may be useful for diagnosing 70% to 99% carotid stenosis in symptomatic patients. It is likely that in routine clinical practice the sensitivity and specificity for detecting severe stenosis are considerably lower. The abysmal sensitivity and specificity of DUS and MRA in detecting moderate stenosis suggests that patients may be unconsciously downgraded to 0% to 49% or upgraded to 70% to 99% stenosis.
