Diameter reduction is performed in longitudinal or long axis. Some vascular surgeons request this additional information to validate PSV/EDV and ICA/CCA ration data. If your PSV tell you you have a 50-79% stenosis, most surgeons would want to know if this is more 50% or more like 79%. I would recommend suggesting to the physician to only calculate diameter reduction in the presence of disease.
