    Axial image of the right CCA

    Concentric thickening of the common carotid wall. The intima media thickeness measures 0.45 cm

     
    Area of Interest: Arteries / Aorta; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Inflammation;

    Duplex ultrasound
     

    Duplex ultrasound of the common carotid artery revealed pulsus bisferiens and widening of spectral envelope

     
    Area of Interest: Arteries / Aorta; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound-Colour Doppler; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Obstruction / Occlusion;

    Pulsus bisferiens at the level of the internal carotid artery

     
    Area of Interest: Arteries / Aorta; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound-Colour Doppler; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Haemodynamics / Flow dynamics;

    Duplex ultrasound of the extrernal carotid artery reveals high systolic and diastolic velocity and spectral widening

     
    Area of Interest: Arteries / Aorta; Imaging Technique: Ultrasound-Colour Doppler; Procedure: Diagnostic procedure; Special Focus: Haemodynamics / Flow dynamics;
