An automated online technique is described for measurement of artery diameter in flow-mediated dilation (FMD) ultrasound (US) images, using artificial neural networks to identify and track artery walls. This allows FMD results to be calculated without the inherent delay of current retrospective methods. Two networks were trained to identify artery anterior and posterior walls using over 3200 examples from carotid artery images. Both networks correctly classified approximately 97% of the… CONTINUE READING
