Abstract

Carotid plaque vulnerability is difficult to characterize from B-mode ultrasound imaging alone. However, elastographic characterization of plaque mechanical properties may aid in the assessment of vulnerability. As an initial step to understand the complex wave propagation that can occur in plaques, we have developed simulation models that incorporate different shear moduli (μ) of the arterial wall, surrounding medium, and plaque. We explored the wave propagation both in longitudinal and transverse imaging planes.
