The rupture of atherosclerotic plaques is known to be associated with the stresses that act on or within the arterial wall. The extreme wall tensile stress (WTS) is usually recognized as a primary… Expand
Effects of varied lipid core volume and fibrous cap thickness on stress distribution in carotid arterial plaques.
The rupture of atherosclerotic plaques is known to be associated with the stresses that act on or within the arterial wall. The extreme wall tensile stress is usually recognized as a primary trigger… Expand
Study of cardiovascular function using a coupled left ventricle and systemic circulation model
To gain insight into cardio-arterial interactions, a coupled left ventricle-systemic artery (LV–SA) model is developed that incorporates a three-dimensional finite-strain left ventricle (LV), and a… Expand
Semiautomated analysis of carotid artery wall thickness in MRI
To develop a semiautomatic method based on level set method (LSM) for carotid arterial wall thickness (CAWT) measurement.
Compressed Sensing using Prior Rank , Intensity and Sparsity Model ( PRISM ) : Applications in Cardiac Cine MRI
Introduction: Compressed sensing (CS) has recently been applied to MR image reconstruction to shorten data acquisition time. In this work, we propose a novel CS method for dynamic MRI applications… Expand
Quantification of fibrosis in infarcted swine hearts by ex vivo late gadolinium-enhancement and diffusion-weighted MRI methods
Many have speculated that MRI signal characteristics can be used to identify regions of heterogeneous infarct associated with an arrhythmogenic substrate; however, direct evidence of this… Expand

Analysis of carotid artery plaque and wall boundaries on CT images by using a semi-automatic method based on level set model
IntroductionThe purpose of this study was to evaluate the potentialities of a semi-automated technique in the detection and measurement of the carotid artery plaque.MethodsTwenty-two consecutive… Expand
Stress Analysis of Carotid Atheroma in Transient Ischemic Attack Patients: Evidence for Extreme Stress-Induced Plaque Rupture
Plaque rupture has been considered to be the result of its structural failure. The aim of this study is to suggest a possible link between higher stresses and rupture sites observed from in vivo… Expand
