Table 2 A: Geometric parameters in the left and right carotid arteries. B: Subgroup analysis of the same geometric parameters of all carotid arteries, but dichotomized into presence or absence of an internal carotid artery stenosis ≥10%

From: Carotid geometry is an independent predictor of wall thickness – a 3D cardiovascular magnetic resonance study in patients with high cardiovascular risk
