Abstract
Current intravascular ultrasound imaging technology is able to determine the extent and distribution of pathologic processes within the vessel wall, but is not highly sensitive in discriminating between different types of pathologic tissue. `Tissue characterization' refers to a set of computer-based techniques that utilize features of the ultrasound signal beyond basic amplitude to help define the structure of the tissue of interest. Although preliminary results with this approach are encouraging, additional work is needed to define its clinical application in vascular disease.
