The carotid ultrasound/Doppler study showed normal right common carotid artery
(Figure 1), right internal carotid artery (ICA; Figure 2), and external carotid artery, with normal color flows and Doppler waveforms.
Two validated, reproducible measures that have been used by other researchers to follow the subclinical progression of atherosclerosis are measurement of coronary calcification by computed tomography and ultrasound measurement of the common carotid artery
The primary trial end point was the rate of change in the common carotid artery
far-wall intima-media thickness (IMT) assessed by computer image-processed B-mode ultrasonograms.
Small balloons on the tip and proximal shaft are inflated in the external carotid artery and the common carotid artery
to suspend blood flow during the stenting process.
23) Intima media thickness was measured at three points on the far walls of both the left and the right common carotid artery
Contrast-enhanced computed tomography detected a heterogeneous mass that had arisen above the bifurcation of the left common carotid artery
and had extended to near the skull base.

at its origin with extensive surrounding thrombus (Fig.
