This paper describes the morphological changes in peripheral signals due to arterial diseases with various severity conditions and site of stenosis using modeling approaches, and its effect in the morphological parameters of radial artery. As stenosis induces abrupt change in geometry and elastic properties of arterial tree (constitutes major reflection sites), hybrid model is well suited for studying the changes in shape of the pressure and flow wave transmitted through the stenosis. These morphological changes in wave shape of peripheral signal have significant diagnostic value in both modern and traditional medicine systems. It can be used for the quantitative assessment of the severity of the arterial diseases.
