Reference values for myocardial two-dimensional strain echocardiography in a healthy pediatric and young adult cohort.
BACKGROUND The accurate evaluation of intrinsic myocardial contractility in children with or without congenital heart disease (CHD) has turned out to be a challenge. Two-dimensional strainExpand

Characterization of plaque components with intravascular ultrasound elastography in human femoral and coronary arteries in vitro.
BACKGROUND The composition of plaque is a major determinant of coronary-related clinical syndromes. Intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) elastography has proven to be a technique capable of reflecting theExpand

Automated measurement of fetal head circumference using 2D ultrasound images
In this paper we present a computer aided detection (CAD) system for automated measurement of the fetal head circumference (HC) in 2D ultrasound images for all trimesters of the pregnancy. The HC canExpand

Intraluminal ultrasonic palpation: assessment of local and cross-sectional tissue stiffness.
Many intravascular therapeutic techniques for the treatment of significant atherosclerotic lesions are mechanical in nature: examples are angioplasty, stenting and atherectomy. The selection of theExpand

Intravascular elasticity imaging using ultrasound: feasibility studies in phantoms.
A technique is described for measuring the local hardness of the vessel wall and atheroma using intravascular ultrasound. Strain images were constructed using the relative local displacements, whichExpand

Performance evaluation of methods for two-dimensional displacement and strain estimation using ultrasound radio frequency data.
In elastography, several methods for 2-D strain imaging have been introduced, based on both raw frequency (RF) data and speckle-tracking. Although the precision and lesion detectability of axialExpand

Noninvasive two-dimensional strain imaging of arteries: validation in phantoms and preliminary experience in carotid arteries in vivo.
Cardiac disease and stroke are the major causes of death in the Western World. Atherosclerosis of the carotid artery is the most important predictor of stroke. Elastography is a technique to assessExpand

Morphological and mechanical information of coronary arteries obtained with intravascular elastography; feasibility study in vivo.
AIMS Plaque composition is a major determinant of coronary related clinical syndromes. In vitro experiments on human coronary and femoral arteries have demonstrated that different plaque types wereExpand
