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

Techniques characterizing the coronary atherosclerotic plaque: influence on clinical decision making?
The composition of the atherosclerotic lesion rather than the degree of stenosis is currently considered to be the most important determinant for acute clinical events. Modalities capable ofExpand

Vascular tissue characterisation with IVUS elastography.
Knowledge about the mechanical properties of the vessel wall and plaque is important for guiding intravascular interventional procedures and detection of plaque vulnerability. Rupture ofExpand

IVUS elastography: a potential identifier of vulnerable atherosclerotic plaque
Rupture of atherosclerotic plaques is associated with acute myocardial infarction and unstable angina pectoris. Previously, plaque rupture has been associated with morphological features. In thisExpand

Characterisation of plaque components with IVUS elastography
The availability to characterise different plaque components could be used to guide intravascular interventional procedures. Additionally, the vulnerability of a plaque to rupture is related to theExpand
