OBJECTIVE Carotid distensibility (CD) is a measure of carotid artery elasticity that has been introduced as a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Information regarding reproducibility of sonographic CD measures is limited. The objective of this study was to evaluate the inter-reader reliability of sonographic measurements of common carotid artery (CCA) diameters and derived metrics of CD. METHODS Two independent readers (R1 and R2) measured the systolic diameter (SD) and diastolic… CONTINUE READING
