Method Magnetic resonance phase velocity mapping
Comments For the eight subjects studied, the average value of the mean (time averaged over the cardiac cycle) WSS in the suprarenal aorta was 10.4 dynes/cm^2 at the posterior wall and 8.6 at the anterior wall. In the infrarenal aorta, WSS values were 4.7 at the posterior wall and 6.1 at the anterior wall. See BNID 106214
