Abstract
This paper offers an algorithm for determining the blood flow parameters in the neck vessel segments using a single (optimal) measurement plane instead of the usual approach involving four planes orthogonal to the artery axis. This new approach aims at significantly shortening the time required to complete measurements using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance techniques. Based on a defined error function, the algorithm scans the solution space to find the minimum of the error function, and thus to determine a single plane characterized by a minimum measurement error, which allows for an accurate measurement of blood flow in the four carotid arteries. The paper also comprises a practical implementation of this method (as a module of a larger imaging-measuring system), including preliminary research results.
