BACKGROUND Atherosclerotic plaque stability is related to histological composition. However, current diagnostic tools do not allow adequate in vivo identification and characterization of plaques. Spectral analysis of backscattered intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) data has potential for real-time in vivo plaque classification. METHODS AND RESULTS(More)
Spherically focused, high frequency (30-50 MHz) ultrasonic imaging transducers are fabricated by using a piezoelectric polymer film and membrane deflection technique that is compatible with CMOS circuit fabrication. Micromachined ultrasonic transducers with 0.5-2.0 mm-diameter apertures and f-numbers ranging from 1.3-4.0 are fabricated and characterized.(More)
