Figure 2: Contrast-enhanced computed tomography (left), fused positron emission tomography/computed tomography (middle) and positron emission tomography alone (right) in patients with symptomatic carotid artery stenosis. Right-sided carotid artery stenosis with vessel wall calcifications and mild 18F-FDG uptake (a). Note the normal physiological uptake in salivary glands. Left-sided carotid plaque with moderate 18F-FDG uptake (b). Note the dense physiological uptake in the right longus capitis muscle and parotid gland
