Computer based pattern recognition of carotid arterial disease using pulsed Doppler ultrasound.


A minicomputer based system has been developed for studying carotid artery blood flow data obtained for a combined B-mode, pulsed Doppler ultrasound scanner. The goals of this work are to devise and improve techniques for estimating the extent of atherosclerosis at the carotid artery bifurcation. Features are automatically extracted from spectrum analyzed… (More)
