The aim of our investigation was to determine effect of the internal carotid arteries (ICAs) tortuosity (S-shape), kinking and coiling on the arterial blood flow by magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound (US).
Type of the artery pulsation at CAs is the same as the control group and corresponds to the musculo-elastic arteries. CAs affects the hemodynamic throughout the artery whith a background of increasing the area of its cross section. The ultrasound has confirmed the results obtained on MRI qualitatively, but correlation coefficient for quantitative parameters was low.
