From: Ultrasound settings significantly alter arterial lumen and wall thickness measurements

Figure 6

Effect of dynamic range, gain and probe distance on measured wall-thickness. Wall thickness plotted against the dynamic range and gain settings used to record the images. The different symbols represent the distance between the ultrasound probe and the leading edge of the far war of the phantom artery. Each data point is the mean of 200 measurements (50 frames × 4 angles). Error bars show standard deviation and if not visible are contained within the icon. A. Phantom A with wall-thickness of approximately 0.54 ± 0.01 mm. B. Phantom B with wall-thickness of approximately 1.06 ± 0.01 mm. C. Phantom C with wall-thickness of approximately 1.56 ± 0.01 mm
