Abstract

We aimed to characterise and to identify the predominant plaque type in vivo using unprocessed radiofrequency (RF) intravascular ultrasound (US) backscatter, in remodelled segments of human atherosclerotic coronary arteries. A total of 16 remodelled segments were identified using a 30-MHz intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) scanner in vivo. Of these, 9 segments were classified as positively remodelled (>1.05 of the total vessel area in comparison with the proximal and distal reference segments) and 7 as negatively remodelled (
