The DFS is built on the proven platform of the Resolute Integrity(TM) DES with Continuous Sinusoid Technology (a unique Medtronic method of stent manufacturing that forms one single strand of wire into a sinusoidal wave enabling a continuous range of motion), as well as the next-generation Resolute Onyx(TM) DES with CoreWire Technology that allows it to have a denser core metal surrounded by a cobalt alloy outer layer for thinner struts with enhanced radiopacity (visibility during imaging).
The 2-D Gabor function can be specified by the frequency of the sinusoid Wx and the standard deviation ox and oy, of the Gaussian envelope as:
