  • The robust border identification of atherosclerotic carotid plaque, the corresponding degree of stenosis of the common carotid artery (CCA), and also the characteristics of the arterial wall, including plaque size, composition, and elasticity, have significant clinical relevance for the assessment of future cardiovascular events. To facilitate the follow-up and analysis of the carotid stenosis in serial clinical investigations, we propose and evaluate an integrated system for the segmentation… CONTINUE READING
