Improvement of axial spatial resolution of ultrasound image using Wiener filter for measurement of intima-media thickness of carotid artery

Abstract

Measurement of intima-media thickness (IMT) of the carotid artery by ultrasonography is widely used for diagnosis of atherosclerosis. For accurate measurement of IMT, in the present study, a method based on the Wiener filter was developed for improvement of image spatial resolution. There are many studies on improvement of spatial resolution for elimination… (More)
