An increased distance between the brain surface and the skull causes the appearance of a broad avascular band in the carotid angiogram, which -- apart from other criteria -- has been valued as a sign of cerebral atrophy. 54 patients (60 to 79 years old), suffering from cerebrovascular diseases, were examined. Carotid angiography of the afflicted hemispheres(More)
21 patients suffering from cerebrovascular diseases were examined by means of angiocinematography. The 37 X-ray films were taken under standardized conditions of exposure and development, and were evaluated by use of densitometry. The flow speed and the blood volume/min were measured in the internal carotid artery, as well as the arterial transit time from(More)
