Age related changes of human aortic distensibility: evaluation with ECG-gated CT

Abstract

Aortic distensibility is a parameter to grade vascular diseases and age-related effects because it is related to the elastic properties of the vessel wall. In this study vascular cross-sectional area changes have been determined using ECG-gated CT to analyse the age dependency of aortic distensibility. Distensibility measurements of the aorta were performed… (More)
