Pulsatility index

A measure of the variability of blood velocity in a vessel, equal to the difference between the peak systolic and minimum diastolic velocities divided by the mean velocity during the cardiac cycle.

Larger intracranial aneurysm size correlates with higher ipsilateral MCA PI, demonstrating that aneurysms affect distal intracranial hemodynamics 1).
