Abstract
It has been proposed that atherosclerotic plaques vulnerable to disruption and thrombosis have a lipid-rich core covered by a thin cap. However, a method to detect those plaques has not been established. We hypothesized that such plaques are yellow due to reflection of the yellow lipid core through a thin cap which may be detected by angioscopy. We developed software to quantify yellow color saturation in digitized angioscopic images.
