    Atherosclerosis is a chronic immune-modulated pathological process affecting multiple vascular beds and leads to diseases that are a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. 1 Typically, atherosclerosis has slow progression and a long asymptomatic phase. In the later stages, atherosclerosis may manifest as either exertional symptoms due to luminal narrowing Cited by: 1.

“This book reviews the advances in coronary imaging, succinctly describing the roles of old and new technology. The purpose is to assist physicians in the evaluation and management of patients with coronary artery disease. The book meets the objectives using an evidence-based approach.

The book is written for practitioners. Abstract. Animal models have been extensively used to understand atherogenesis and the complex biological mechanisms of atherosclerosis. Yet, their advanced plaque morphologies may have distinct features from human coronary lesions and strikingly, they often do not lead to acute cardiac events, at least in mice models.

Atherosclerotic plaque was defined according to the consensus statement as a focal structure encroaching into the lumen of at least mm or 50% of the surrounding carotid intima-media thickness, or demonstrates a thickness of > mm as measured from the media–adventitia interface to the intima–lumen interface.

13 The presence of plaque and maximum plaque. Radiotracers for Imaging Atherosclerosis. As outlined earlier in this review, LDL accumulates within atherosclerotic plaques, where it plays a pathogenic role in the formation, progression, and destabilization of lesions.

LDL has been labeled with various radioisotopes, including I, 99m Tc, and In (35–40). The assessment of atherosclerotic plaque burden by non-invasive imaging techniques should allow for early detection of the disease and in vivo identification of high-risk plaques. 10,12,13 Several invasive and non-invasive imaging techniques are available with which atherosclerotic disease can be assessed.

The optimized sequence is validated on patients with significant carotid plaque. Quantitative plaque morphology measurements and signal-to-noise ratio measures show that 3D-MERGE provides good.

Pathology of Carotid Atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis occurs near the branch ostia, bifurcations, and bends, suggesting that flow dynamics plays an important role in its induction.[] Atherosclerotic plaque tends to occur at regions where the flow velocity and shear stress are reduced.[] The flow properties of the carotid bifurcation contributes to the initiation of atherosclerotic plaque.

Atherosclerotic Plaque Characterization Methods Based on Coronary Imaging provides a complete review of computer methods for atherosclerotic plaque reconstruction and characterization. The authors, with their expertise from biomedical engineering, computer science, and cardiology, offer a holistic view.

1 Introduction. Atherosclerotic plaques are the most common cause of coronary artery diseases. Given that the distribution and morphology of components of these plaques define the severity of the lesion, analyzing atherosclerotic plaque composition is a helpful procedure in the diagnosis of such diseases.

Intravascular ultrasound imaging (IVUS) plays very important roles in clinical cardiology. This book describes the newest advances in vascular ultrasound imaging and the surrounding technologies for high frequency vascular ultrasound imaging.

Most important topics of the book are technical applications of IVUS (elasticity imaging, chromaflow) and the basic data 5/5(1). Characterization of Atherosclerotic Plaques by Laser Speckle Imaging. A method capable of determining atherosclerotic plaque composition and measuring plaque viscoelasticity can provide valuable.

Research towards the non-invasive imaging of atherosclerotic plaques is of high clinical priority as early recognition of vulnerable plaques may reduce the incidence of cardiovascular events. The fibroblast activation protein alpha (FAP) was recently proposed as inflammation-induced protease involved in the process of plaque vulnerability.
