BACKGROUND This paper presents calculations of the temperature distribution in an atherosclerotic plaque experiencing an inflammatory process; it analyzes the presence of hot spots in the plaque region and their relationship to blood flow, arterial geometry, and inflammatory cell distribution. Determination of the plaque temperature has become an important(More)
This work is based on the premise that fingertip temperature variation during arterial occlusion and subsequent reperfusion can be used as an indirect measurement of vascular reactivity, commonly assessed by directly measuring flow and its temporal alterations in response to arterial occlusion. Temperature of the fingers depends on blood perfusion and(More)
