One of the first oaths a monarch takes on ascending to the throne is to uphold the independence of the Scottish Church. The only two things that a Regent is not permitted to do is change the inheritance of the crown and change the status of the Kirk.Back to 1639, and a number of Scottish nobles have signed what called the “National Covenant”, where they pledge to uphold the independence of the Church in the face of English tyranny.

Materials and methods 7 jugular veins (4 normal, 3 with pulsatile tinnitus) were imaged with CE MRA. 2 D phase contrast MRV was also acquired transverse to the sigmoid sinus to determine inlet flow conditions. Surfaces were segmented using VMTK (Orobix, Bergamo, Italy) and Geomagic Design X (Geomagic, Rock Hill, USA).
