Background: The internal carotid artery (ICA) is essential for diagnosing and treating cerebrovascular diseases and plays a significant role in the human head and neck circulatory system. Traditional techniques of ICA research have their limitations, but more recent developments in medical imagingÂ—particularly retrospective angiographyÂ—offer more thorough evaluation options.
Objective: This study aimed to investigate variations and morphometry of the ICA using 2D digital subtraction angiography (DSA) images, with a focus on age and gender-related differences.
Methods: The 149 individuals with subarachnoid hemorrhage who had cerebral angiography were included in the research. Analysis was done on 2D ICA pictures without any obvious pathology. PACS imaging techniques were used to measure morphometric characteristics such as the length, angle, and diameter of the ICA segments.
Results: According to the study, ICA length and direction were not substantially affected by age, but segment diameters were highly associated with age, indicating that segment diameters decreased with age. However, gender indicated statistically significant variations in several segment sizes, with males typically having greater diameters than females. Gender had little effect on length and orientation.
Conclusion: This study sheds light on ICA changes and morphometry, emphasizing age-related diameter decreases and gender-related variations in segment diameters. These findings highlight the need to take age and gender into account when conducting clinical evaluations and cerebrovascular disease therapies.
