Abstract [en]

Determining plaque vulnerability is critical when selecting the most suitable treatment for patients with atherosclerotic plaque in the common carotid artery and quantitative characterization methods are needed. In this study, shear wave elastography (SWE) was used to characterize soft plaque mimicking inclusions in three atherosclerotic arterial phantoms by using phase velocity analysis in a static environment. The results were validated with axial tensile mechanical testing (MT). SWE measured a mean shear modulus of 5.8 ± 0.3 kPa and 25.0 ± 1.2 kPa versus 3.0 kPa and 30.0 kPa measured by mechanical testing in the soft plaques and phantom walls respectively. The results show good agreement between MT and SWE for both the plaque and phantom wall.
