Title: L5-S1 MINIMALY INVASIVE TRANSFORAMINAL LUMBAR INTERBODY FUSION: A FINITE ELEMENT MODE
Issue Date: 2019
Abstract: This paper aims at developing an ultrasound-based diagnostic measure quantifying plaque activity and the likelihood of asymptomatic lesions to produce neurological symptoms. Based on echogenicity the methodology has been successfully applied on longitudinal ultrasound images of the carotid artery bifurcation. Transverse ultrasound images incorporate noise, artifacts, shadowing and reverberation. Nevertheless, transverse images are a resource not yet fully explored. The comparison of sequential transverse images minimizes the intrinsic scale variability between operators and ultrasound devices. Based on pixel level tissue classication, the use of an articial neural network analysis applied to transverse images allows identifying vulnerable or unstable echolucent plaques.
