Abstract: Assessment of a living person’s age has gained prominence due to its numerous applicability: suspected criminals with no reliable records of identification where verifying age is essential for determining legal and/or financial responsibility; adults from developing nations with no reliable certificates or documents and falsification of age in order to merit appointments or participate in sporting events are a few to mention. In this work, the Peak Systolic Velocity (PSV) and End Diastolic Velocity (EDV) on the right and left Common Carotid Arteries were measured with the LOGIQ 5 EXPERT Ultrasound Machine using the technique of Doppler Ultrasound Velocity Measurement of blood flow in the carotid arteries of 50 volunteers (25 males and 25 females) whose blood pressures were taken. Use of The IBM SPSS shows that the Right Peak Systolic Velocity and Left End Diastolic Velocity were unrelated to the blood pressure for the hypertensive, pre-hypertensive and the non-hypertensive groups. However, results show that the Right End Diastolic Velocity (REDV) is positively correlated with age , while the Right Peak Systolic Velocity (RPSV) is negatively correlated with age both indicating that the age of an individual could be estimated.
