Using digital microscopy and powerful image analysis software,
stented arterial sections can be evaluated parametrically to
determine the level of stenosis and neointimal thickening.
Qualified pathology staff also provide a quantitative score of
the level of damage done to the test artery by evaluating the
- RBC count
- Multi-nucleated giant cells (MNGC)
Using similar techniques, a pathologist can qualitatively
measure inflammation, RBC distribution, etc. by assigning a score
to each category.
