Understanding Arterial Biomechanics with Ultrasound and Waveguide Models

"Using wave-based physics applied to biomedical ultrasound and modal analysis of structures has provided new ways to examine the human vasculature. New biomarkers could provide insight into disease processes and assist in identifying cardiovascular disease at earlier stages, which would have profound effects on earlier interventions and improved patient outcomes. These developments could provide for the measurement of the physiological “age” of a person’s arteries."
