Pulse wave imaging of the human carotid artery: an in vivo feasibility study
TLDR
PWI was proven feasible in the human carotid artery, and may be proven useful for detecting vascular disease through mapping the pulse wave and estimating the regional PWV in the carotids artery.
A Novel Noninvasive Technique for Pulse-Wave Imaging and Characterization of Clinically-Significant Vascular Mechanical Properties In Vivo
TLDR
The feasibility and reproducibility of PW imaging (PWI) during propagation along the abdominal aortic wall is demonstrated by acquiring electrocardiography-gated (ECG- gated) radiofrequency (rf) signals noninvasively and this state-of-the-art technique allows noninvasive mapping of vascular disease in vivo.
In Vivo Quantitative Mapping of Myocardial Stiffening and Transmural Anisotropy During the Cardiac Cycle
TLDR
The ability of the proposed method to polarize the shear wave generation and propagation along a chosen axis permits the study the local elastic anisotropy of myocardial muscle, which is found to vary with muscle depth.
Nonlinear mechanical behavior of the human common, external, and internal carotid arteries in vivo.
Intrinsic stiffness of the carotid arterial wall material in essential hypertensives.
TLDR
In middle-aged and older HT patients, the intrinsic mechanical properties of the carotid arterial wall material were unchanged, and the increased stiffness of the commonCarotid artery in the HT group was due primarily to the increased level of blood pressure, indicating the deleterious effects of aging and hypertension on "intrinsic" stiffness are not additive.
