Measuring arterial material properties using wave-based approaches with ultrasound and computational models

Project: Research project

Project Details

Description

Public Health Relevance: Successful completion of this research program will result in an inexpensive, noninvasive ultrasound-based technique for assessing the viscoelastic and nonlinear properties of the arterial wall. Because ultrasound is routinely used for clinical assessment, it is an excellent modality for quickly and comprehensively assessing the arteries and thus the level of atherosclerotic disease in patients. The technologies developed in this project could be implemented on the huge installed base of modern ultrasound scanners, with minor modifications, for widespread clinical application throughout the world.
