In this paper, we describe a collection of algorithms that are used to provide motion trajectory estimates from atherosclerotic plaque ultrasound videos. Our approach is based on the use of four different optical flow methods to estimate motion vectors (Horn and Schunk, Lucas, Nagel and Uras). To estimate the optimal motion estimation parameters, we perform hundreds of experiments on a Linux cluster, and further validate the results using synthetic simulations. Following motion estimation, we compute pixel motion trajectories over the plaque regions and vessel walls. Pixel trajectories are then used to assess plaque deformation.

Global optimization for motion estimation with applications to ultrasound videos of carotid artery plaques Murillo, S.; Pattichis, Marios S.; Soliz, P.; Barriga, S.; Loizou, Christos P.; Pattichis, Constantinos S. (2010)Motion estimation from digital video is an ill-posed problem that requires a regularization approach. Regularization introduces a smoothness constraint that can reduce the resolution of the velocity estimates. The problem ...
