Intravascular smoke-like echo always appears in regions of stasis, but the exact mechanism of its production is unclear. We investigated its appearance in relation to erythrocyte rouleaux formation. To study this relationship we performed a series of in vitro and animal experiments. In the in vitro study, we observed an erythrocyte suspension by ultrasonography and found it to be echo-free. Under the microscope, red blood cells were observed in a dispersed state. If an equal amount of… CONTINUE READING
