This project used in vivo MRI-based computational models of human carotid atherosclerotic plaques to examine the role of mechanical variables in atherosclerotic plaque progression. It documented quantitative data showing correlation of atherosclerotic plaque with structural stress. Further, it developed regression functions for plaque growth in terms of structural stress, arterial wall thickness and plaque history.
