Elastance is a distinguished marker in diagnosing various arterial diseases as studies have reported carotid artery-related diseases linked with stiffness index (β) values greater than 5. This study was to estimate elasticity of common carotid artery by measuring the diameter during systolic and diastolic phases using pixel tracing of successive frames and… CONTINUE READING
