Conference paper


Vascular imaging is indispensable to medical care. Conventional methods use either X-rays and contrast agents (TLA or DSA) or Doppler ultrasonography. The first method is invasive, involves radiation, and requires a short hospitalization period. As such, it is a patient-unfriendly method, but the conventional projective angiograms provide good spatial resolution. The second method is fast, simple, and provides us with vessel images as well as with blood-velocity data.
