Virtual histology analysis of carotid atherosclerotic plaque: plaque composition at the minimum lumen site and of the entire carotid plaque.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Virtual Histology intravascular ultrasound (VH IVUS) volumetric analysis (analysis of the entire plaque responsible for stenosis) has been used for carotid plaque diagnosis. Knowing the carotid plaque characteristics by analyzing the plaque composition only at the minimum lumen site will facilitate plaque diagnosis using VH IVUS. PURPOSE To… (More)
