Measurement of arterial wave velocity with ultrasound

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

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 positions. In this paper an arterial wave is generated noninvasively in the vessel wall by the radiation force of ultrasound. The wave velocity in the vessel is measured noninvasively by ultrasound with high time resolution over a short distance of a few millimeters.
