Medical - Medical (general) / doppler report
French term or phrase: Vertébrales
"Absence d'infiltration ou de plaque athéromateuse le long les CP, CI et CE des deux côtés. Vertébrales enregistrées et dégagées en V2, à prédominance droite".

Is this referring to the vertebral artery flow, is there a word missing , or am I merely missing the point?
"dégagées" is also giving me some problems in this context.

vertebral arteries
Explanation:
The missing word here is "artères".

dégagées - clear view, clearlky visualised - here I believe it means a clear view of the vertebral arteries as far as the V2 segment

good article here with helpful terminology

Of course what is being measured is blood flow in the vertebral arteries (that's what Doppler is for) - but "vertébrales" is short for "artères vertébrales" and is standard shorthand for this type of report. Similarly CI and CE are artères carotides internes/externes.

CP = artère carotide primitive = common carotid artery
