  • Tissue elasticity can be estimated from displacement and strain images acquired under controlled deformation. We extend this approach for coronary arteries, deformed and imaged by an integrated angioplasty balloon and ultrasonic imaging probe. Because the lumen cross section of a severely occluded artery is not circular, we have also developed a technique to perform all motion computations in the reference frame of the lumen's geometric center. This coordinate system is independent of the… CONTINUE READING
