Special Issue "Advances in Vascular Imaging"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2022) | Viewed by 18192
Vascular diseases represent the most frequent cause of death in developed countries. Human vessels, especially veins, also represent a path for tumor spreading. Arterial diseases affect all 3 wall layers—intima, media, and adventitia. Subclinical arterial inflammation, but also wall shear stress and elasticity changes, represent important mechanisms that lead to atherosclerosis.
Modern medicine enables both invasive and non-invasive visualization of these processes. Many methods are already used clinically—from angiography, duplex Doppler examination, CT or MR angiography to optical coherence microscopy, etc.
The planned issue of Diagnostics will bring together original studies and review articles describing the use of these methods, and it is open for your submissions.
