Image-based assessment of atherosclerotic plaque vulnerability: Towards a computational tool for early detection and prediction

Plaque characteristics and local haemodynamic/mechanical forces keep changing during plaque progression and rupture. Quantifying these changes and discovering the progression-stress correlation can improve our understanding of plaque progression/rupture. This will lead to a quantitative assessment tool for early detection of vulnerable plaques and prediction of possible ruptures. Our research project aims to combine medical imaging, computational modelling, phantom experiments and pathological analysis to investigate plaque progression and vulnerability to rupture in both animal models and patients with carotid stenosis. We …
