Produktbeschreibung
Ultrasound and Carotid Bifurcation Atherosclerosis provides a comprehensive overview of the most recent advancements in instrumentation, imaging techniques including the use of contrast enhancement agents, plaque image analysis and its automation, elastography and plaque motion analysis; also, the use of ultrasonic and other biomarkers in the detection of the high risk cardiovascular individual. Finally, it deals with the application of IVUS, TCD and carotid plaque characterization in clinical practice and in stroke risk stratification. Ultrasound and Carotid Bifurcation Atherosclerosis is intended for all those working in the field of atherosclerosis, ultrasound imaging and cardiovascular risk, including the clinician, the vascular ultrasonographer, the epidemiologist, the molecular biologist, the biomedical engineer and the informatics scientist. Furthermore, this book bridges the gap between the researcher and the clinician, who is keen to incorporate the latest results of research to his daily practice.

Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"It is a scholarly work containing an evaluation of much basic research. ... It is designed more to provide a platform for people who have some experience of carotid ultrasound to further their knowledge and provide a platform for further development. It is also appropriate for stroke physicians and vascular surgeons who wish to understand the current position of imaging techniques in selecting people for treatment based on risk stratification. ... a good departmental book to have around." (Michael Weston, RAD Magazine, December, 2012)
