AIM Establishing relationship between coronary calcium volumes from Intravascular Ultrasound (IVUS) and automated carotid intima-media thickness (cIMT) helps in understanding the genetic nature of atherosclerosis disease. In this research, we have quantified the detected calcium from IVUS video frames and associated a relationship between coronary calcium volumes computed and automated cIMT from B-mode ultrasound. METHODS Coronary calcium volume is computed from IVUS and auto cIMTs are… CONTINUE READING
