The effect of hemodynamics, vessel wall compliance and hematocrit on ultrasonic Doppler power: an in vitro study.

Abstract

Previous in vitro studies in rigid tubes under pulsatile flow conditions have reported a lack of a cyclic variation in blood echogenicity that contradicts in vivo results. To investigate whether or not these variations can be attributed to the compliance of the vessel wall, a series of in vitro experiments with compliant tubes, under pulsatile flow… (More)
