Sample text

Scan with the patient supine or on a tilt table feet down in reverse Trendelenburg to allow viscera to drop down towards the pelvis away from the upper abdomen. It is difficult to compress abdominal veins. Use colour Doppler to follow the veins, as loss of colour flow may suggest occlusive thrombus. Sample a spectral signal from a vein to confirm loss of flow. If flow is seen throughout the veins then they are patent although they could still be partially thrombosed. The age of a thrombus is difficult to define.

If the Doppler shift exceeds the Nyquist limit, then high frequencies are ‘wrapped around’ and appear to be in the opposite direction relative to the baseline (Fig. 20). (A) (B) Fig. 20 Aliasing shown by spectral Doppler A: Aliasing is easily recognized as the peak is shown in the opposite direction. B: Increasing the velocity scale eliminates aliasing to restore a complete signal. PRINCIPLES OF VASCULAR ULTRASOUND 23 From the Doppler equation: f max ϭ 2 f ovmax cos ␪/c ϭ PRF/2 so that vmax ϭ cPRF / 4 f o cos ␪ This shows that the ways to reduce aliasing with pulsed-Doppler are to: ● ● ● ● increase the velocity scale (PRF) reduce the transmitted frequency fo increase the angle of insonation ␪ (decrease cos ␪), or move the baseline.

DUPLEX ULTRASOUND SCANNING Most modern machines combine two modalities that use pulsed ultrasound: ● B-mode (brightness) ● pulsed-Doppler. The same transducer is used for each modality. The machine can switch between them at great speed to give an illusion of real-time imaging for each. Lower frequencies are required for Doppler than B-mode because reflectors from blood cells for Doppler are weaker than tissue echoes at the same depth. PRINCIPLES OF VASCULAR ULTRASOUND 17 Pulsed Doppler can then be viewed as either: ● spectral Doppler or ● colour Doppler.
