Atherosclerotic plaque rupture has been extensively considered as the leading cause of death in the world. It is believed that high stress within plaque can be an important factor which can trigger the rupture of the plaque. High resolution multi-spectral magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has allowed the plaque components (arterial wall, lipids, and fibrous cap) to be visualized in vivo [1]. The patient specific finite element model can be generated from the image data to perform stress analysis and provide critical information on understanding plaque rupture mechanisms [2]. The present work is to apply the procedure to a total of 14 patients (S1 ∼ S14), to study the stress distributions on carotid artery plaque reconstructed from multi-spectral magnetic resonance images, and the possible relationships between stress and plaque burdens.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
