Pulsed-Wave Doppler
Accurately Assess in vivo Blood Velocities

Measure Blood Flow Velocity to Understand Disease States

Pulsed wave (PW) Doppler uses the Doppler principle that moving objects change the characteristic of sound waves. By sending short and quick pulses of sound, it becomes possible to accurately measure the velocity of blood in a precise location and in real time.

PW Doppler can measure velocities in multiple areas including:

  • Diastolic function (E/A waves)
  • Right ventricular function
  • Renal artery resistive index and pulsatility index
  • Abdominal aortic velocities
  • Carotid artery imaging
