Definition:Measurement of average carotid artery blood flow velocity, the speed with which blood moves along the circulation in any particular segment of carotid artery. Blood flow velocity is related directly to blood flow and inversely to cross-sectional area. Blood flow velocity can be measured indirectly by Doppler ultrasound
