BACKGROUND The hemodynamic force of wall shear stress (WSS) has demonstrated a critical role in atherogenesis. PURPOSE To study the effect of age and gender on mean WSS (MWSS) values in major cerebral arteries. METHOD Thirteen cerebral arterial location sites in 301 healthy (157 M, 144 F; mean 47 ± 15 years; range 18-84 years old) were studied. Quantitative magnetic resonance angiography was used to obtain volume flow and diameter, and subsequently to calculate MWSS via the Hagen-Poiseuille… CONTINUE READING
