The stiffening of arteries by the tissue-mimicking gelatin


Pulse wave velocity (PWV) is widely used for estimating the stiffness of an artery. PWV is measured by the time of travel of the "foot" of the pressure wave over a known distance. This technique has a low time resolution and is an average measurement of artery stiffness between the two measuring sites. The elastic modulus of the artery can be estimated with… (More)
