主要是記述在我學我的身體時得到的一些拉七拉雜的資料,不過我想可能不是對我自己有用而已,所以有一些我會多多少少地改成中文化。all the news may be the important informations so i would translate to short notes here. [2010.05.29]

MRI research highlights high-risk atherosclerotic plaque hidden in the vessel wall

ScienceDaily (2010-05-31) -- Researchers have shown that use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in an animal model can noninvasively identify dangerous plaques. The findings offer possible applications in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with atherosclerosis.

1. MRI(核磁共振技術)可以藉此非穿入性的方法,檢測動物的plaques,此發現有助於動脈硬化之治療及診斷的應用。

2. Atheroma (Atheromatous plaque)動脈粥樣化:an accumulation and swelling in artery walls that is made up of cells (mostly macrophage cells), or cell debris, that contain lipids (cholesterol and fatty acids), calcium and a variable amount of fibrous connective tissue. In the context of heart or artery matters, atheromata are commonly referred to as atheromatous plaques. It is an unhealthy condition, but is found in most humans.
