The propagation of pressure pulses between the carotid and the femoral artery is studied by calculating a pressure ratio (PR) between these locations. This ratio is parameterized into different features to permit a quantitative comparison between the PRs. The results obtained from such comparison suggest that it would be possible to non-invasively identify the size and severity of atherosclerotic plaque deposits by studying the features of the carotid-femoral PR.
