Abstract

Automatic analysis was performed of four-dimensional ultrasonographic (US) data in the carotid artery. The data, which were acquired in 31 subjects (eight healthy volunteers and 23 patients) by using a US scanner fitted with a special probe, were successfully processed. Acquisition time averaged 12 minutes. Data for all healthy volunteers (n = 8) and patients with complete occlusions (n = 3) were correctly classified. Data for two of the 12 patients with mild to severe (but not occlusive) disease were misclassified by one category.
