The degree of stenosis of the common carotid artery (CCA) but also the characteristics of the arterial wall including plaque size, composition and elasticity represent important predictors used in the assessment of the risk for future cardiovascular events. This paper proposes and evaluates an integrated system for the segmentation of atherosclerotic carotid plaque in ultrasound video of the CCA based on normalization, speckle reduction filtering (with the hybrid median filter) and parametric… CONTINUE READING
