Annotation StatusNot sequenced
Plaque NotesThe plaques have always tended to remain small, approximately .50mm. Also, the plaques are clear and many of them tend to have a halo around them. Another observation I have made is that the plaques are always uniform in size. The plaques look the same after 24 hours, 48 hours, and even 72 hours.
