Validation of New Semi-Automated Ultrasound Image Analysis Method for Assessing Vascular Resistance in Musculoskeletal Tissues

SUMMARY Background. The aim of this study was to analyze the concurrent validation between the resistance index (RI) obtained by Spectral Doppler (SD) and the vascular resistance (VR) calculated by quantifying pixel color intensity of the power Doppler (PD) signal. Methods. The brachial artery of 30 healthy participants (24.8 yrs; SD = 6.44 yrs) were … Continued
