Abstract

Background and Purpose-This study aimed to determine the correlation of invivo ultrasound measurements of intima-media thickening (IMT), lumen diameter, and cross-sectional area of the common carotid artery (CCA) with corresponding measurements obtained by gross pathology and histology,Methods-Sixty-six moribund neurological patients (mean age 71 years) underwent B-mode ultrasound of the CCA a few days before death. During autopsy, carotid specimens were removed in tote. Carotid arteries were ligated:and cannulated for injection of a hydrophilic embedding material under standardized conditions. The carotid bifurcation was frozen and cut manually in 3-mmcross slices. Digital image analysis was carried out to determine the diameter and the cross-sectional area of the frozen slices of the CCA. IMT was assessed by light microscope. Ultrasonic and planimetric data were compared. Results-Mean measurements of lumen diameter and cross-sectional area were 7.13 +/-1.27 mm and 0.496 +/-0.167 cm(2), respectively, by ultrasound, and 7.81 +/-1.45 mm and 0.516 +/-0.194 cm(2), respectively, by planimetric analysis of the unfixed redistended carotid arteries (R-2=0.389 and 0.497). Themean IMT was 1.005 +/-0.267 mm by ultrasound and 0.67 +/-0.141 mm histologically, resulting in a mean difference of -31%. Conclusions-Transcutaneous B-mode ultrasound provides a reliable approach for in vivo measurements of the cross-sectional area and, less exactly, of the lumen diameter of the CCA. Compared with histological results, in vivo ultrasound measurements of the IMT are systematically larger.
