Progression of Carotid Artery Occlusion
This stock medical exhibit features multiple front images of the arterial supply of the neck and brain to describe the progression of carotid artery occlusion. It compares the normal condition vs. one with loss of blood flow to the left side of the brian (stroke). Detailed enlargements of the carotid artery bifurcation detail normal blood flow, partially blockage of bloodflow with plaque, near complete blockage of bloodflow, and finally complete occlusion from plaque causing loss of blood supply to the brain.
