Modification of the phased-tracking method for reduction of artifacts in estimated artery wall deformation


Noninvasive measurement of mechanical properties, such as elasticity, of the arterial wall, is useful for diagnosis of atherosclerosis. For assessment of mechanical properties, it is necessary to measure the deformation of the arterial wall. In this study, a modification of the previously proposed phased-tracking method was conducted to improve measurement… (More)
