A knowledge of beam shape is desirable for many Doppler ultrasound applications, and is especially important for transcranial Doppler recordings where the beam may undergo significant distortion by the skull. Although it may not be possible to determine the precise beam shape for individual cases due to variations in the physical characteristics of the media in the beam path, information about the range of beam shapes that are likely to arise for in vivo recordings from the middle cerebral… CONTINUE READING
