Table 2 Peak cross-sectional areas (CSA), differences between maximum and minimum CSA, peak volume flow and netflow for 14 analysis planes (see Fig. 4B). All data are presented as average values over all 7 wild-type mice

From: Fast self-navigated wall shear stress measurements in the murine aortic arch using radial 4D-phase contrast cardiovascular magnetic resonance at 17.6 T
