An easily calculable statistic proportional to the instantaneous spatial mean blood velocity through a vessel cross section is derived from Doppler power spectral estimates for the case where the Doppler beam is assumed to be of negligible thickness compared to the vessel diameter. This is an alternative statistic to that derived where uniform insonation is assumed, an assumption thought to be poorer in many real cases. The main requirement is that the velocity profile is monotonic increasing… CONTINUE READING
