Using Ultrasonography, Shear Wave Elastography, Strain Imaging, and 3-D Volume Ultrasonography on Cardiovascular Disease

Overview

About this study

The researchers are trying to see whether contrast-enhanced ultrasonography, shear wave elastography, strain imaging, and 3-D volume ultrasonography improves arterial wall visualization and identifies arterial elastic properties among individuals with fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD), atherosclerosis, personal history of spontaneous coronary artery dissections (SCAD), or personal history of segmental arterial mediolysis (SAM) that may be different compared to those without the aforementioned conditions.

  • Patients who are able and willing to sign the informed consent will be enrolled.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Missing records to determine whether or not they have fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD), and/or segmental arterial mediolysis (SAM), and/or spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD), and those with atherosclerosis, and normal individuals.
