Medical Definition of Doppler ultrasonography

1. Application of the Doppler effect in ultrasound to detect movement of scatterers (usually red blood cells) by the analysis of the change in frequency of the returning echoes.In many instances, ultrasound has supplanted x-radiography as the imaging method of choice, because it poses no risk to patients, is noninvasive, and of moderate cost. Doppler-corrected ultrasound enables real-time viewing of tissues, blood flow, and organs that cannot be obtained by any other method. It has proved a boon to cardiology, greatly aiding evaluations of cardiovascular patients, and to obstetrics, where it is used for foetal monitoring. (05 Mar 2000)
