Objectives: 1. To investigate the relationship of carotid inflammation, as measured by FDG positron emission tomography (PET) to standardized uptake value in atherosclerotic plaque, with the number of covert brain infarcts. 2. To investigate the relationship of FDG PET standardized uptake value with the relative volume of white matter hyperintensity. 3. To correlate vascular inflammation in the entire aorta and aortoiliac vessels to carotid inflammation and cerebral infarcts and white matter disease.
