An automated three-dimensional particle tracking system has been evaluated for its ability to measure axial wall shear stress in a biologically relevant flow system. The flow system and particles modeled the conditions of monocytes in a large antery stenosis. It is shown that wall shear stress can be accurately obtained and that the error is a function of shear rate, shear rate gradient, and distance from the wall.
