Independence of basilar blood flow velocity from carotid blood flow in an ultrasonographic rat model

D. Kreis, U. Nestler, D. Schulz, M. Stein & D.-K. Böker
Objective: Cerebral arteries of the rat can be visualized ultrasonographically through an extended craniectomy. Direct measurements of blood flow velocities and estimations of vessel diameter are obtained using triplex mode, combining B-mode, color-coding and Doppler examination. The present study was[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
