Previous results show that ultrasonic backscatter from red blood cells (RBCs) suspended in saline is a function of hematocrit and frequency and that it can be affected by flow disturbance. The experimental data agree well with the theories. In the present article, results on ultrasonic backscatter from flowing whole blood are reported. Studies have been conducted on porcine, bovine, and human blood. Ultrasonic backscatter of flowing whole blood differs from that of RBC suspensions in that it is… CONTINUE READING
