Our results indicate that when implementing the process on a stationary acquisition dataset, the uncertainty improves at each stage while the uncertainty is reduced. When comparing stationary acquisition dataset to pullback dataset, the values were as follows: calcium: 3.8±1.09mm-1 in stationary and 3.9±1.2 mm-1 in a pullback; lipid: 11.025±0.417 mm-1 in stationary and 11.27±0.25 mm-1 in pullback; fibrous: 6.08±1.337 mm-1 in stationary and 5.58±2.0 mm-1. These results indicates that the process presented in this paper introduce minimal bias and only a small change in uncertainty when comparing a stationary and pullback dataset, thus paves the way to a highly accurate clinical plaque type discrimination, enabling automatic classification.
