PURPOSE To examine the variability of Doppler measurements along the extra-cranial courses of the nondiseased common carotid artery (CCA) and internal carotid artery (ICA) and determine the effect of this variability on assessment of carotid arterial stenosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS During the study period, 580 patients were referred for carotid arterial ultrasonography (US), including Doppler measurements of flow velocities in the proximal, middle, and distal portions of the CCA, in the bulb… CONTINUE READING
