This article introduces a mean frequency estimator based on a radio frequency (RF) domain complex cross-correlation model (C3M). The C3M estimator differs from the real cross-correlation model (CCM) estimator in two respects; it is an unbiased estimator of blood flow velocity and/or tissue motion independent of the bandwidth of the RF ultrasound signals, and it provides an estimate of the spatial bandwidth of the RF-signal. The estimators derived from the complex cross-correlation model (mean… CONTINUE READING
