Reconstruction of the blood flow velocity vector as an additional mode of ultrasonic tomograph

Physics of Wave Phenomena Aims and scope Submit manuscript


The possibility of simultaneous reconstruction of the blood flow velocity vector and spatial distributions of the speed of sound and absorption coefficient in a medical ultrasonic tomograph is discussed. The operating capacity of the proposed spatial-correlation method for determining the blood flow velocity vector is confirmed by experiments on a tomograph prototype.
