In this paper, we introduce a framework for simulating intravascular ultrasound (IVUS) images and radiofrequency (RF) signals from histology image counterparts. We modeled the wave propagation through the Westervelt equation, which is solved explicitly with a finite differences scheme in polar coordinates by taking into account attenuation and non-linear effects. Our results demonstrate good correlation for textural and spectral information driven from simulated IVUS data in contrast to real data, acquired with single-element mechanically rotating 40~MHz transducer, as ground truth.
