The 3D atlas has allowed the scientists to identify the beginning of left–right asymmetry in the heart

. 3D model of a femoral artery obtained by real 3D imaging, revealing the location, number, and extent of distinct atherosclerotic plaques. In this sample, three plaques can be discerned (arrows), at the femoral bifurcation and distributed along the superficial branch.

Scientists at the CNIC have led the development of a new three dimensional ultrasound method that improves the assessment of cardiovascular risk in healthy individuals


Representative transmurality map from an 3D-upsampled model with a short axis view at high-magnification to illustrate the 3D methodology for transmural-based scar assessment from images obtained with conventional 2D delayed gadolinium-enhanced CMR

Image: In the picture, individual endothelial cells have different fluorescent barcodes and mitogenic stimulations, allowing the non-invasive fate-mapping of their proliferative and migratory behaviours over time.

3D ultrasound of the right carotid artery. An atherosclerotic plaque is visible as a small protrusion (arrow) in the vessel wall of the internal branch of the proximal carotid artery (bottom), close to the bifurcation. In contrast, the surface of the disease-free external branch (top) is smooth (asterisk).
