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:
- 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.
