2 High-resistance Flow A high peripheral resistance results in a more pulsatile flow with a steep systolic upslope during the acceleration phase, followed by deceleration and a significant reflux in early diastole and short backward flow in mid-diastole. Zero flow is typically seen in end diastole. This pattern is referred to as triphasic flow. The systolic pulse wave is in part reflected by the high peripheral resistance and thus moves backward through the arterial system until the flow is again redirected toward the periphery by the influx of blood during the next cardiac cycle.
Selection of a proper transducer assists in achieving an adequate Doppler angle. a A linear-array transducer with a maximum beam deflection of 20° does not enable insonation angles of less than 70° when scanning a vessel running parallel to the skin surface and will lead to the above-described errors b A curved-array transducer with a small radius can be tilted to record the Doppler frequency spectrum with a small angle if the sample volume is placed at the edge of the scan sector. This improves the spectrum obtained and reduces the measurement error because vessels parallel to the skin surface can be interrogated with an angle of incidence of 50 – 60° (57° in the example shown).
Therefore, a sudden decrease in the vessel diameter is associated with an increase in blood flow velocity (a 50 % decrease in diameter, corresponding to a 75 % decrease in cross-sectional area, will result in a 4 times higher flow velocity). The flow profile flattens out (plug flow) when the blood enters a narrower vessel segment. If the increase in flow velocity is known, it is possible, in principle, to calculate the degree of stenosis according to the continuity equation: ⎛ X = 100 · ⎢1 – ⎝ V1⎞ ⎢ V2⎠ X percentage stenosis grade (cross-sectional area reduction) V1 prestenotic velocity V2 intrastenotic velocity This equation for estimating the degree of stenosis does not take into account other systemic factors (blood pressure, wall elasticity, peripheral resistance) that may affect the ultrasound measurement.
