This work presents Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) measurements in idealised and patient specific human carotid artery bifurcations (CAB) under steady and pulsatile flow. The geometry and corresponding boundary conditions were obtained by Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and replicated in an in-vitro model. A complex three-dimensional flow structure exists inside the CAB and vorticity and wall shear stress data are used to quantify the differences between the idealised and patient specific geometry.
