1 Doppler Doppler Chapter 19 A moving train with a trumpet player holding the same tone for a very long time travels from your left to your right. The tone changes relative the motion of you (receiver) and the player (sound source) The f appears to increase as it approaches you from the left and decreases as it moves away from you on your right. This change in frequency is a Doppler shift and is called Doppler Frequency Doppler Frequency The frequency only changes when there is a change in the source and receiver position. There is no change when the source and receiver remain constant. This is the primary physical principle which is used to measure the velocity of blood in a vessel Doppler shift Defined as The f shift created between the transmitted and received f by an interface moving with velocity at an angle to the sound source. It is a low f that rides or uses as a carrier the higher transmitted f Separating the two frequencies is done in the system an is call? Doppler shift Doppler shift (Hz) = reflected f transmitted f A transmitted f has a of 5 MHz When its reflected off moving blood cells the measures MHz What is the Doppler shift? Is reflects a positive shift because the frequency is higher than the carrier f We already know this shift is created when the transmitted sound strikes moving vessels Positive shifts are created when the change is higher than the original f Negative shifts are created when the change is lower than the original f Doppler shift 1

2 Speed vs. velocity The Doppler equation Doppler f only indicate velocity not speed Speed is measured in units or centimeters per second (cm/s) dist./ time Measurement of the distance RBC s travel / s Velocity is defined as the speed and direction that the blood is moving Doppler shift = 2 x speed of blood x transducer frequency x cosθ propagation speed Also expressed as f D = 2vf cosθ c f shift and Blood cell velocity It is directly related The faster the velocity the higher the Doppler shift that is created If the Doppler study produces a shift of 10 khz with the blood moving at a velocity of 6 m/s. What is the shift when it slows to 3 m/s? Why is the # 2 in the Doppler equation Simply because there are two Doppler shifts In the US exam. The first occurs when the sound strikes the moving RBC s The second occurs when the reflection from the RBC s returns to the transducer Hz vs. cm/s Example of a Doppler shift scale Current equipment measure the transmitted and received sound frequency and display the information in Hz The system computers have the Doppler equation programmed in it and utilize this to simultaneously display both numbers. This is important because 3 khz Doppler in a vessel means nothing but a velocity of 0.4 m/s can mean a great deal to the clinician. 2

3 How are Doppler shift and transmitted Frequency related? They are directly related If you double the transmitted frequency you so the same to the shift. Say a 3 MHz transducer produces a 5 khz Doppler shift. If you change to a 6 MHz transducer what shift will you get? Primary Beam Direction vs. Flow Direction Doppler frequency measurements depend on the direction of the flowing vessel and the direction the beam intersects it. If possible the best shift is obtained parallel to the moving RBS s This creates a 100% accurate velocity measurement Primary Beam Direction vs. Flow Direction In reality an angle will almost always exist creating a measured velocity that is less than that of the true velocity To correct Cosine Θ is used By introduction of this into the equation a true velocity can be determined from almost any angle Nondirectional Doppler Systems that measure the presence of moving RBC s by the Doppler shift Flow toward or away form the unit will be the same Used to detect flow in arteries after repair or fetal heart rate in L & D Since output is nondirectional a single speaker is used to hear the pulse Bidirectional Doppler Most common Doppler in clinical use Distinguishes flow direction represented by a positive or negative shift in the spectrum Requires stereo one speaker is used for flow toward the transducer the second for flow away The Doppler spectrum is a graphic display of what is being heard CW Doppler Requires two transducers one constantly transmitting while the other is always listening What is the greatest advantage of this type of Doppler? Is can accurately measure extremely high velocities without aliasing The primary disadvantage of this Doppler is its inability to determine the exact location of the moving blood cells 3

4 CW Doppler CW Doppler Signals from the entire overlapping region are heard or displayed without knowing their depth This type of limitation is called range ambiguity There is also the inability to compensate for depth This transducer contains 2 elements each in the shape of a semicircle. Does not produce anatomical images Pulses duration are continuous CW transducers CW transducers For this reason backing material is eliminated resulting in: Undampened signal Narrow band width High quality factor Higher sensitivity CW transducers Matching layers are still necessary Why? They increase the percentage of sound transmitted into and out of the body Pulse Wave Doppler We use it almost every day so it is important that we know how it works 4

5 Pulse Wave Doppler Differs from CW in that it only has one PZT and uses it to send and receive The operator can select the depth at which to hear the Doppler shift by use of a gate The system knows where the gate is placed and only listens to the reflections that are within this calculation angle Pulse Wave Doppler Advantages Selection of location in which to listen to the Doppler shift Decreases the artifact related with CW Disadvantages Inaccurate measurement of high velocities Aliasing results when the velocity is greater than the nyquist limit Pulse Wave Doppler Imaging and Doppler are performed by the same transducer. When they are done simultaneously they are called duplex imaging Since the transducer is also used for imaging a backing is used resulting in the same characteristics as just imaging PZT s Low quality factor Lower sensitivity Wide bandwidth pulses Aliasing Only seen on pulsed Doppler Results from the sample rate is to low for the measured velocity of moving blood Results in the peak velocities being cut and wrapped around to the bottom half of the display below the baseline The nyquist limit is the highest Doppler frequency that can be displayed without aliasing Aliasing When listening to the sound made by aliasing it sounds different. They come from the wrong speaker. Nyquist limit (Hz) = PRF (Hz) 2 Depth and aliasing More aliasing is created the deeper you go Velocities are interrogated many times a second This interrogation is directly related to the system s PRF When shallow the PRF is high providing a higher Nyquist limit When deep the PRF is low resulting in a lower limit 5

6 The effect of transmitted frequency on aliasing High frequencies create more aliasing because they create higher Doppler shifts Aliasing however is less common in lower frequency transducers But the trade off is that the image quality is not as good Less Aliasing Slower blood velocity Lower frequency transducer Shallow gate (high PRF) Aliasing More Aliasing Faster blood velocity Higher frequency transducer Deep gate (low PRF) Techniques to avoid aliasing Adjust scale to max. Use a lower frequency transducer Change to a different position that is closer Use CW Shift the baseline Adjust scale to max Changes the Systems PRF to its max range Advantages increases the nyquist limit less chance of aliasing Disadvantages The high PRF decreases sensitivity to low velocities and aliasing can still persist Use a lower frequency transducer Advantage Since lower frequencies produce lower Doppler shifts you are less likely to exceed the Nyquist limit Disadvantages No significant disadvantages for Doppler but the lower frequencies produce grayscale images of lesser quality Change to a different position that is closer Advantage New view can provide a closer sample volume resulting in a higher PRF and Nyquist limit Disadvantage None to speak of the only limitation is the sonographer skill with obtaining alternate sites. 6

7 Use CW Advantage Aliasing does not occur Disadvantage Range ambiguity Overlapping vessels No anatomical image Shift the baseline Advantages normally the baseline sits in the middle of the spectrum display flow toward the transducer appears above and flow away below. By adjusting the baseline to zero higher velocities are displayed in the proper direction Shift the baseline Disadvantages The appearance on the display only changes The signal will still arise from the incorrect speaker It is ineffective when the shift is extremely high Spectrum gray scale Related to the amplitude of all the reflected signals And or the number of RBC s creating the reflection Color Flow Doppler Gray scale identifies anatomical structures while color identifies blood flow Provides information on flow location To use pulsed Doppler Assist in range resolution But is also subject to aliasing Color velocity Color Doppler uses a mean or average velocity Color maps provide a visual reference of how the system convert the velocities into a color image These are in a look up table (in the system) with the 2 most commonly use being Velocity mode Variance mode 7

8 Colors represent flow direction and peak average velocity The black is no flow Above is flow toward the transducer Below is flow away form the transducer Colors close to the black are slower that those further away form it Velocity mode Provides additional information from velocity mode It disguises turbulent flow from laminar flow Colors on the Lt side of the map represent laminar flow Colors on the Rt represent turbulent flow Variance Mode Doppler Packets What is it? To determine accurate blood flow velocities the area must be sampled with multiple pulses This group of pulses are referred to as a packet or ensemble The larger the packet the greater number of pulses Doppler Packets This results in a more accurate velocity measurement. And provides an increased sensitivity to slow flow So why not always have very large packets? More time is needed to acquire the information Doppler Packets Resulting in slower frame rates And decreased temporal resolution The packet size must be balanced with the all factors to provide a quality image Power Doppler Identifies the presence of a Doppler shift Is non directional All vessels are represented in the same color While CW, CD and Pulsed Doppler process velocity information Power Doppler process amplitude strength without regard to direction The amplitude is directly related to the number of moving RBC s 8

9 Power Doppler advantages Aliasing does not occur since velocity is not processed It is not angle dependent unless it is 90 o There is an increased sensitivity to low flow rates Useful in a subtotal occlusion or determining venous patency Power Doppler disadvantages The frame rate is slower than CD resulting in reduced temporal resolution Any motion will show on the monitor Traditional velocity or direction of flow cannot be measured Doppler artifacts While Doppler shifts are mainly produced by moving blood some shifts may be produced by moving anatomical structures The most common are pulsatile vessels and the cardiac muscle. These low frequency shifts when present in the displayed spectrum are called clutter When they are present in the color image they are referred to as ghosting Doppler artifacts How does one eliminate these? By the use of a wall filter When this filter is adjusted you can create or eliminate this artifact. Its only effect is on the low frequency shifts having no effect on the higher frequencies With CD it eliminates the color from slow moving reflectors What is it? It s a form of mirror artifact that only occurs with spectral Doppler The spectrum appears to be bidirectional instead of the normal unidirectional pattern Crosstalk Results from receiver gain set to high The angle of insonation is near 90 when the flow in the vessel is at the beams focus Crosstalk 9

10 Spectral Analysis All blood does not travel in a vessel at the same speed Instead it appears to be parabolic in shape The center of the vessel is the fastest While the slower is at the vessel wall. This produces many Frequencies Spectral Analysis is the tool used to understand the complex signals that arise and identify their individual velocities Spectral Analysis Spectral Analysis is the tool used to understand the complex signals that arise and identify their individual velocities. Two currently methods used are Fast Fourier Transformation Autocorrection Older analog methods are no longer used but deserve to be mentioned. Chirp Z transform, time interval histograms, zero crossing detectors Fast Fourier Transformation A digital process used for both Pulsed Doppler and CW. Used because it is very accurate Displays the various components of the spectral velocity that make up the reflected signal Fast Fourier Transformation So why do we need to display all these frequencies? We need to separate turbulent flow from laminar flow With laminar flow most RBC s travel at the same velocity so the trace has a narrow line. So the spectral window is clean Image of good quality spectrum Fast Fourier Transformation Turbulent flow is chaotic Blood is moving in many velocities and at times in more than one direction The spectrum now no longer has a clean line and well define window This type of flow is referred to as spectral Broadening 10

11 Autocorrection A digital technique that analyses color Doppler. Used because there are massive amounts of color data to process Less accurate than FFT but much faster Diagnostic Indices The pulsatile spectral wave form seen in arteries show a distinction between the systolic and diastolic component of the cardiac cycle Two mathematical equations have been formulated to describe this waveform Resistive Index Pulsatility Index Resistive Index Pulsatility Index This is a quantitative measurement of the Doppler waveform. It measures resistance in a segment of a arterial system Useful to diagnose stenosis or distal disease RI = Vel max Vel min Vel max Similar to RI but it requires one additional measurement PI = Vel max Vel min Vel mean Most modern equipment provide the mean velocity measurements automatically Advantages of RI and PI they are objective mathematical measurements not subjective observations They depend only on the wave form shape as the equation compares one velocity to another The calculation are not affected by the Doppler angle. 11
