Abdominal aorta ultrasound scan. (a) B-mode image sequence was used to derived diameter and distension. (b) PW-Doppler signal was used to plot diameter-flow velocity loop thus evaluating PWVabd. Aortic pulse pressure was derived from PWVabd and distension measurements. Furthermore, blood flow velocity signal was used to derive wall shear rate measurements. Carotid artery ultrasound scan. (c) B-mode image sequence was used to derived diameter and distension. (d) PW-Doppler signal was used to plot diameter-flow velocity loop thus evaluating PWVcar. Furthermore, blood flow velocity signal was used to derive wall shear rate measurements.
