Parametrics and Non-Parametrics


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 following:

  • fibrosis
  • RBC count
  • multi-nucleated giant cells (MNGC)
  • macrophages.



Using similar techniques, a pathologist can qualitatively measure inflammation, RBC distribution, etc. by assigning a score to each category.
