This paper presents an automatic system for the measurement of carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) that is based on the digital processing of ultrasound images. The measurement technique is described in detail, highlighting the advantages compared to other methods and, reporting some experimental results. Finally, an analytical approach is used to estimate the intrinsic accuracy of the system
