- Automatic recognition of the common carotid artery in longitudinal ultrasound B-mode scansAlessandro C Rossi
ESAOTE Europe BV, Philipsweg 1, 6227 AJ Maastricht, The Netherlands
Med Image Anal 12:653-65. 2008..Since these results are obtained via rigorous data decimation and using a cascade of rather simple steps, the proposed automatic algorithm is suitable for real-time recognition of the CCA...
- Nonlinear processing in B-mode ultrasound affects carotid diameter assessmentAlessandro C Rossi
ESAOTE Europe BV, Cardiovascular Research Institute Maastricht CARIM, Maastricht University, Maastricht, The Netherlands
Ultrasound Med Biol 35:736-47. 2009..This study demonstrates the relevant effects of nonlinearities such as saturation and logarithmic compression on the quality of noninvasive US CCA diameter measurements...
- Automatic localization of intimal and adventitial carotid artery layers with noninvasive ultrasound: a novel algorithm providing scan quality controlAlessandro C Rossi
ESAOTE Europe BV, Maastricht, The Netherlands
Ultrasound Med Biol 36:467-79. 2010..The method is clinically viable, providing robust estimates of CCA internal and external diameter and IMT waveforms for both CCA walls, even at a low B-mode update rate of 30 Hz...
