Ultrasonic visualization of dynamic behavior of red blood cells in flowing blood

It is well known that the scatter of ultrasound by blood is mainly attributed to red blood cells (RBCs) and RBC aggregation. In the present review, researches of hemodynamic influence on RBC aggregation and ultrasound backscatter from blood were overviewed. A mock flow loop and a cylindrical chamber were employed to produce various blood flows, such as… (More)
