Paper Abstract

A system is under development for a relatively non-invasive technique for the assessment of atherosclerosis. The principle of this method is digital video x-ray subtraction for the visualization of arterial structures after the intravenous injection of contrast media. The prototype unit for the development of video subtraction techniques has been assembled and preliminary testing has started. Re-sults so far in dogs have shown good visualization of the heart, carotid arteries and renal arteries.
