Accurate and Automatic Carotid Plaque Characterization in Contrast Enhanced 2-D Ultrasound Images

Abstract

The carotid plaques characterization is essential to decide about the possibility of surgical intervention (endarterectomy/stenting) on the patient. Soft and unstable plaques represent a major risk for the patient, as they are correlated with an augmented probability of brain infarction and emboli generation.
