The direct measurement of the velocity profile of blood flowing in a vessel yields a volume flow estimate that is more accurate than single-point Doppler ultrasound. A volume flow estimate is made by assuming a circularly symmetric velocity field and integrating the velocity profile measured along a diameter. The many velocity measurements made contribute to higher precision in the integrated velocity estimate. Also, the velocity profile furnishes the functional diameter of the vessel at many… CONTINUE READING
