Paper Abstract

The heart is the most important organ to our life. The coronary artery is the only path through which blood is provided to the heart. In the vessels of the heart especially the coronary artery, fluency of blood is mainly determined by vascular diameter and blood pressure. If blood is obstructed thus flows not freely due to vascular straitness, coronary heart disease would have a high occurrence among the aged people. Therefore, measurement of vessel diameter of coronary artery and the vascular parameters are of great importance of reflecting the function of the heart and disease diagnosis. In this paper, one novel and simple method to measure the coronary arterial diameter is presented and the relative difference of vessel (Dpi) is defined as one clinic diagnosis criterion for the degree of vascular straitness.
