Turbulence is an important factor in the assessment of stenotic disease and a possible causative mechanism for thromboembolism. Previous Doppler studies of turbulence have typically used whole-blood preparations or suspensions of erythrocytes. Recently, a water-glycerol based blood-mimicking fluid (BMF) has been developed for use in Doppler ultrasound studies. This fluid has desirable ultrasound properties but it has not previously been described during in vitro investigations of turbulence… CONTINUE READING
