B-scan images of artery 1. Given that the diameter of the full-blown angioplasty balloon is 10 mm in the final frame (a), when the artery was stretched to comply with the balloon, the circumference of the vessel wall in the nth frame (b) could be estimated by tracing the inner arterial wall. Note that the superficial spots are parts of the folded balloon.
