Carotid Artery Segmentation in Ultrasound Images and Measurement of Intima-Media Thickness

Abstract

BACKGROUND The segmentation of the common carotid artery (CCA) wall is imperative for the determination of the intima-media thickness (IMT) on B-mode ultrasound (US) images. The IMT is considered an important indicator in the evaluation of the risk for the development of atherosclerosis. In this paper, authors have discussed the relevance of measurements in… (More)
