Table 4 Summary of YM and GSM values in vessel wall and plaque and inter-frame reproducibility of measurements 1

From: Shear wave elastography imaging of carotid plaques: feasible, reproducible and of clinical potential

All patients Wall YM Plaque YM Plaque GSM
Mean 42 kPa (95% CI: 37-48 kPa) 75 kPa (95% CI: 64-85 kPa) 56 (95% CI: 52–65)
CV 22% (95% CI: 20-24%) 19% (95% CI: 17-21%) 7% (95% CI: 5-8%)
  1. 1The mean and 95% confidence intervals (CI) of results across all patients are shown in addition to the average inter-frame coefficient of variation (CV) of YM and GSM measurements.
