Note instead of not. Sorry for typo. The plaque is serially sectioned on the first picture.
What does presence of dry calcification indicate?
That's the nature of plaques I just thought it was cool to indicate the calcium deposites (hydroxyapatite, Ca). There is literature about calcium distribution throughout plaques. Not all of it was like that as you can see from the previous picture. This portion literally cuts like chalk. For the trained cardiologist or surgeon it may indicate how advanced the disease. I hope we get more feedback.
Impressive! Thanks for sharing.
