ABSTRACT

The paper deals with the design and implementation of the workplace for imaging and afterwards measurement of the plate in the area of the carotid artery. It is divided into two parts. In the first part we describe the development and testing of the device for imaging of the arteriosclerotic plaque in the area of the carotid artery. The second one is focused on the software development for the analysis and measurement of the plate depicted on the ultrasonography images.
The 3D image creation requires gaining 2D image data, followed by a3D reconstruction. The paper describes the extension of the standard ultrasonography probe by taking advantage of the precise setting of the probe and synchronization with the heart activity. As the synchronization signal ECG from the patient monitor is used. The system based on the microcontroller (generating control commands for the CD30M unit) is used to solve this assignment. The algorithm created in this processor generates commands for the control unit, which is synchronized with the patient monitor signal course.
Next, the paper deals with the progression and regression analysis of the objects depicted on the ultrasonography images. The key objects are the atherosclerotic plates, located in the area of the carotid arteries. The approaches, using the general principles and methods to recognize the points of interest and objects in medical images which use known parameters and properties of analyzed objects, are described. The architecture of the FOTOM system and the process measurement visualization are briefly described here. In the last part the achieved results are assessed.

Keywords: ultrasound probe, RS-232, ATmega128, linear movement, CD30M, image analysis, ultrasound images, plaques, FOTOM
