This paper presents the prediction of the amount of elasti city of a given artery for different aged pers on to obtain absolute accuracy in detection and determination of the boundary of ultrason ic carotid artery and intima - media thickness. To satisfy the requirements the most popular training algorithm , the back - propagation based generalized delta ru le ( gdr ) is developed . This procedure may simplify the job of the practitioner for analyzing accuracy and variability of segmentation results . Possible plaque regions are also highlighted . A thorough evaluation of the method in the clinic al environment shows that inter observer variability is evi dently decreased and so is the overall analys is time . The results demonstrate that it has the potential to perform qualitatively better than applying existing methods in intima and adventitial layer detection on b - mode images .
