Arterial Tonometry
 Non-invasive device used to obtain Pulse
Wave Analysis (PWA), Pulse Wave Velocity
(PWV)
 To be performed immediately after the MRI
 ~30 minute procedure
 Participant must be laying down
 Do not include PHI in the database

 Pulse Wave Analysis
 Obtain BP measurements using an Omron HEM-907
device
 Use that data to calculate the mean arterial pressure
with the following equation:
• MAP = DBP + 0.4 (SBP-DBP)
 Type the sbp in the notes section as “SBP: x”
 Indicate which side the radial tonometry is being
performed in the notes section
 Enter data into PWA subject screen as follows

 Data acquisition





Relax your arms and hands
Maintain a constant pressure
Acquire 12 seconds of data
Complete acquisition by pressing the space bar
Goal is to achieve good consistency and height in the
waveforms
 Shoot for as high an operating index as possible
• Ideal target: >90 for radial
• Ideal target: >80 for carotid

 Pulse Wave Velocity
 Measure distance (mm) between carotid artery and sternal
notch
 Measure distance (mm) between femoral artery and sternal
notch
 Shoot for lowest standard deviation possible
• Ideal target <10% SD
 Place ECG electrodes on subject prior to acquisition

 Exporting data from software
 This is the data that will be used for analysis
 Export text file after each study visit
 Three exports for each visit
• PWA Radial
• PWA Carotid
• PWV
 Choose result with highest operator index to export
 Keep organized by subject ID, visit number, and result
• 001_B_PWAR
• 001_B_PWAC
• 001_F_PWV

 Backing up the database
 Imperative in case of data loss
 Backup text files as well as database file
 Database file located in following location:
 C:\Program Files\AtCor\SphygmoCor CvMS\data
 Filename: scor.xyz
 Simply copy/paste file into a location other than C:\ drive
 Backup database as frequently as possible
 Rename database file to date it was backed up
 Example: scor4008_5-23-2013.xyz
