This paper aims at developing an ultrasound-based diagnostic measure which quantifies plaque activity, that is, the likelihood of the asymptomatic lesion to produce neurological symptoms. The method is rooted on the identification of an ”active” plaque profile containing the most relevant ultrasound parameters associated with symptoms. This information is used to build an Enhanced Activity Index (EAI) which considers the conditional probabilities of each relevant feature belonging to either… CONTINUE READING
