Allometric scaling of diameter change in the original flow-mediated dilation protocol.


The negative correlation between percent flow-mediated dilation (FMD%) and baseline diameter (D(base)) has only recently been recognised as a fundamental ratio-scaling problem, which is not resolved by significance-testing of D(base) inequality between groups/conditions, nor by covariate-adjusting FMD% itself by D(base). It is resolved appropriately by… (More)
