In this research work, a mathematical framework is presented to detect a mild carotid stenosis (55%) using proximal flow measurements. For this purpose, an already developed 0D model of carotid arteries is considered and stenosis near bifurcation is estimated (detected) using parameter estimation procedure, whereas the data are collected using Doppler ultrasound. The work is useful in detecting vessel abnormalities (stenosis) using flow measurements at proximal sites of the carotid stenosis.
