How Analyze was Used
“At each distending pressure, a region of interest was drawn by a single author (MS), around every slice with the balloon (Analyze). The balloon volume was calculated by integrating the cross‐sectional areas at each distending pressure. The maximum balloon diameter was measured perpendicular to the long axis of the catheter.”
