Quantitative three-dimensional power Doppler angiography: a flow-free phantom experiment to evaluate the relationship between color gain, depth and signal artifact.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES To evaluate the presence of false flow three-dimensional (3D) power Doppler signals in 'flow-free' models. METHODS 3D power Doppler datasets were acquired from three different flow-free phantoms (muscle, air and water) with two different transducers and Virtual Organ Computer-aided AnaLysis was used to generate a sphere that was serially… (More)
