Computerized analysing system using the active contour in ultrasound measurement of carotid artery intima-media thickness.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE B-mode measurement of the carotid intima-media (IM) thickness (T) based on manual tracing (MT) procedures are dependent on the subjectivity of the reader and the existing automatic tracing procedures often fail to detect the IM boundaries accurately. The purpose of this study was to compare the tracing results of the IM boundaries of… (More)
