blood vessel dilation expressed as percent reduction of the force generated in a pre-constricted blood vessel +  
This is a measure of the relaxation caused by the addition of some agent or process to a pre-constricted blood vessel. It is the ratio of the amount of dilation generated compared to a fully dilated blood vessel.
