Sensitivity of new color systems: "maximum entropy method" and angio-color. Comparative in vitro flow measurements

, : Sensitivity of new color systems: "maximum entropy method" and angio-color. Comparative in vitro flow measurements. Ultraschall in der Medizin 17(3): 138-142

The sensitivity of the two procedures for slow blood flow velocities in two flow phantoms examined and compared to conventional colour Doppler. In two phantoms with vessels between 0.3 and 6 mm diameter the slowest measurable blood flow with the different techniques was determined. The influence of various application angles was also studied. The slowest blood flow velocity detected with the MEM technique was 0.6 mm/s and with the angio-technique 0.4 mm/s. Two different scan-heads were used; a 5 MHz probe for the MEM procedures and a 10 MHz probe for ultrasound angiography. Using a 10 MHz scan-head will most likely lead to increased sensitivity of MEM. Blood flow representation with the MEM technique is real-time, while several seconds of acquisition time are required for the angio-technique, which is a disadvantage during clinical use. Conventional Doppler was merely able to represent 15 mm/s blood flow. The angio-technique was less dependent on the application angle than the MEM procedure. The definitely increased sensitivity of the two colour methods open up new areas in the diagnosis of organ and tumour perfusion.
