Dengel and Marlatt publish in Journal of Clinical Ultrasound

Dr. Donald Dengel, associate professor of kinesiology, and doctoral student Kara Marlatt published an article in the Journal of Clinical Ultrasound. The article is titled, “The influence of gender on carotid artery compliance and distensibility in children and adults.”
The purpose of their research was to evaluate the impact of gender on carotid arterial elasticity in a large sample of children and adults. Their findings suggest that gender differences in arterial stiffness are not present early in life but emerge later in adulthood.
