Measuring the artery thickness can detect potential blockages in blood flow. Automating parts of the measurement could improve both the accuracy and repeatability, leading to more consistent treatment. We develop a process for extracting the artery boundaries from an ultrasound image, then consistently measuring the artery thickness. The measurements result in excellent agreement between computer-calculated values and expert measurements.­
