Mechanical forces have been widely recognized to play an important role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. Since coronary arterial motion modulates both vessel wall mechanics and fluid dynamics, it is hypothesized that certain motion patterns might be atherogenic by generating adverse wall mechanical forces or fluid dynamic environments. To characterize the dynamics of coronary arterial motion and explore its implications in atherogenesis, a system was developed to track the motion of… CONTINUE READING
