- The Effect of Lipid Modification on Peripheral Artery Disease after Endovascular Intervention Trial (ELIMIT)
Section of Cardiovascular Research, Department of Medicine, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX, USA Electronic address
Atherosclerosis 231:371-7. 2013
..MRI was performed at baseline and 6, 12, and 24 months. SFA wall, lumen, and total vessel volumes were quantified. MRI-derived SFA parameters and lipids were analyzed with multilevel models and nonparametric tests, respectively...

Computational Biomedicine Lab, Department of Computer Science, University of Houston, Houston, TX 77204, USA
Int J Cardiovasc Imaging 26:817-28. 2010
..Our method detected coronary calcifications with an accuracy, sensitivity and specificity of 98.27, 92.07 and 98.62%, respectively, for a testing dataset of non-contrast computed tomography scans from 105 subjects...
- Segmental analysis of carotid arterial strain using speckle-tracking
Eric Y Yang
Department of Medicine, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas 77030, USA
J Am Soc Echocardiogr 24:1276-1284.e5. 2011
..The aims of this study were to evaluate whether speckle-tracking could be used to measure carotid arterial strain (CAS) reproducibly in healthy volunteers and to determine if CAS was lesser in individuals with diabetes...
