Doppler ultrasound technique is now recognized as the best noninvasive screening test for carotid artery stenosis. Ultrasound does not calculate directly the degree of arterial narrowing, but relies on extrapolating the changes in blood flow parameters to an anatomical stenosis. This paper deals with the estimation of the stiffness indices of mild and severe stenosis of common carotid artery by motion estimation algorithm, focusing on their changes with the progression of atherosclerosis. 145… CONTINUE READING
