Table 2 Characteristics of the study subjects (Intima-media Thickness)

From: Sequentially based analysis versus image based analysis of Intima Media Thickness in common carotid arteries studies - Do major IMT studies underestimate the true relations for cardio- and cerebrovascular risk?

Parameters Image Analysis Sequential Analysis
IMT mean right CCA 0.64 ± 0.19 0.68 ± 0.20
IMT max right CCA 0.79 ± 0.19 0.84 ± 0.20
IMT min right CCA 0.49 ± 0.17 0.50 ± 0.16
IMT mean left CCA 0.63 ± 0.20 0.67 ± 0.20
IMT max left CCA 0.76 ± 0.21 0.83 ± 0.21
IMT min left CCA 0.47 ± 0.16 0.51 ± 0.18
IMT mean (left + right CCA) 0.63 ± 0.18 0.67 ± 0.19
IMT max (left + right CCA) 0.77 ± 0.19 0.83 ± 0.18
IMT min (left + right CCA) 0.48 ± 0.15 0.51 ± 0.15
  1. Characteristics of the study subjects, CCA = common carotid artery. Image analysis was always performed during the first image with the first R-wave in the ECG. Sequential analysis was performed at the maximal value during the heart cycle.
