Objective: To evaluate the relationship between hypertension and carotid atherosclerosis by highfrequency ultrasound and color Doppler with a comparison to normotensive. Method: Using high frequency ultrasound technology and color Doppler to detect 60 cases of patients with hypertension and 40 cases with normal blood pressure of carotid artery intima-media thickness, atherosclerotic plaque size, echo intensity. Compared the difference of above indicators of hypertensive patients and normal blood pressure and blood pressure. Result: Intima media thickness of hypertensive patients (0.95±0.09), Resistive Index of hypertensive patients (0.77 ± 0.03) was significantly higher than normal blood pressure group (P 0.01). The higher of blood pressure levels (systolic blood pressure), the greater carotid intima-media thickness. Conclusion: The hypertensive patients with carotid atherosclerosis are significantly higher than patients with normal blood pressure, and the higher blood pressure levels.
