About this book

Atherosclerosis is a degenerative process affecting blood vessels, which determines narrowing of the lumen, plaque growth, and hardening of the walls. It is a risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. The focus of this book is on the management of the atherosclerotic disease. The coverage spans from histological presentation of the various stages of atherosclerotic lesions to the earliest studies in atherosclerosis therapy, from advanced clinical diagnosis to monitoring, follow-up, and home-care of the atherosclerotic patient. This book shows well-established diagnostic techniques covering several medical imaging modalities such as Ultrasounds, IVUS, MRI, Computer Tomography, along with new trends in early and advanced atherosclerosis diagnosis (innovative drugs and tissue characterization procedures). Surgical standards will be presented along with innovative experimental trials for the treatment of the atherosclerotic patient. The book also covers emerging techniques based on molecular imaging and vibro-acoustics.

About the authors

Dr. Jasjit Suri has spent over 20 years in biomedical engineering/sciences/devices and his last 14 years has been dedicated in the field of medical imaging modalities and its fusion. He has published more than 300 technical papers in body imaging and devices, relating to modalities like MR, CT, X-ray, Ultrasound, PET, SPECT, Elastography and Molecular Imaging. Dr. Chirinjeev Kathuria holds a Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degree and specialized in U.S. Health Care Policy and Administration and a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) from Brown University. He also holds a Master's in Business Administration (M.B.A.) from Stanford University. Dr. Filippo Molinari received the Italian Laurea and the Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the Politecnico di Torino, Torino, Italy, in 1997 and 2000, respectively. Since 2002, he has been an assistant professor on the faculty of the Department di Electronics, Politecnico di Torino, where he teaches biomedical signal processing, biomedical image processing, and instrumentation for medical imaging.
