Local arterial stiffness of the superficial arteries can be evaluated by measuring the diameter change during the heart cycle from ultrasound data in conjunction with the local pulse pressure. In this work, such a system is introduced, and the obtained results on the common carotid artery are compared with those obtained by measuring the carotid to femoral pulse wave velocity (PWV) which can be considered to be the ldquogold standardrdquo technique for the evaluation of arterial stiffness. 14… CONTINUE READING
