Vascular disease is characterized by any condition that affects the circulatory system. Recently, a demand for sophisticated software tools that can characterize the integrity and functional state of vascular networks from different vascular imaging modalities has appeared. Such tools face significant challenges such as: large datasets, similarity in(More)
Intravascular optical coherence tomography (IV-OCT) is an in-vivo imaging modality based on the intravascular introduction of a catheter which provides a view of the inner wall of blood vessels with a spatial resolution of 10-20 μm. Recent studies in IV-OCT have demonstrated the importance of the bifurcation regions. Therefore, the development of an(More)
The analysis of LV rotational motion could provide insights into myocardial dysfunction and predict the outcome of interventions, and this analysis could be performed more simply in separate rotational and radial components. In this study we present an automatic method for decomposing the cardiac motion field into radial and rotational components using the(More)
Increased understanding about the mechanisms of coronary thrombosis in humans has been limited by the lack of imaging modalities with resolution sufficient to characterize fibrous cap tissue and determine its thickness in vivo. Intravascular optical coherence tomography (IOCT) provides images with micrometer axial (10–15 μm) and lateral(More)
