Paper published in Ultrasound Med Biol
In 2005 we showed how Doppler ultrasound spectra could be synthesized in real-time from CFD data, provided that simplistic assumptions were made about the sample volume (SV) power distribution and intrinsic spectral broadening (ISB). In the first paper arising from Luis Aguilar's doctoral thesis work, "On the Synthesis of Sample Volumes for Real-Time Spectral Doppler Ultrasound Simulation", we show how acoustic monopoles can be used to overcome the SV assumption. For Luis' next trick, he will show how this approach can also be used to overcome the ISB assumption, and probably much, much more...
