Two-dimensional flow imaging in the carotid bifurcation using a combined speckle tracking and phase-shift estimator: a study based on ultrasound simulations and in vivo analysis.

Abstract

A two-dimensional (2-D) blood velocity estimator is presented combining speckle tracking (ST) and phase-shift estimation (PE) to measure lateral (vx) and axial (vz) velocities respectively. Estimator properties were assessed in a carotid bifurcation using ultrasound simulations based on computational fluid dynamics, allowing validation toward a ground truth… (More)
