Signal Processing for Classification of Arterial Plaques

Peder C. Pedersen, Dept. of Electrical and Computer Eng., WPI

This talk presents signal processing steps for determining the absolute backscatter characteristics ("backscatter signature") of carotid artery plaques, using Pulse-echo Ultrasound. The goal is to develop an improved in vivo method for classifying such plaques according to stroke risk.
