In this work, the vessel wall
characteristics of carotid artery was measured on T1w, T2w and SNAP images in end-stage
renal disease patients on dialysis. Totally, 94 patients were included. The
time on dialysis was significantly and positively correlated with the mean wall
area (p=0.012), normalized wall index (p=0.006), maximal wall thickness
(p=0.005) and mean wall thickness (p=0.010). The presence of plaque was found
to be significantly and independently associated with the dialysis type (p=0.047)
and time on dialysis (p=0.032).
