FIG. 1.

The registration for the images from the multicontrast [TOF, T1-, T2-, PD-weighted, and magnetization-prepared rapid acquisition gradient-echo (MP-RAGE)] and CINE protocols was achieved by using the bifurcation imaged slice (marked 0) as landmark. Note: * denotes lumen of carotid artery and • denotes lumen of jugular vein.

Distensibility (DC) distribution along the carotid bifurcation for the study population. Location indexed as 0 corresponds to the flow divider. The common carotid artery is represented with values lower than 0, whereas the internal carotid artery is represented with values greater than 0.
