Introduction to Cardiac Doppler Ultrasound


  • Indications for Doppler Echocardiography
  • Doppler Effect
  • Doppler Principles
  • Basic Spectral Doppler Concepts
  • Doppler Instrumentation
  • Valve Sampling
  • Doppler Measurements and Normal Values
  • Doppler Evaluation of Mitral, Aortic, Tricuspid, and Pulmonic Valve
  • Pulmonary Venous Flow

Upon completion of this enduring material activity, you should be able to accomplish the following:

  1. State the basics of Doppler including the use of PW and CW Doppler.
  2. Demonstrate system optimization for proper Doppler acquisition
  3. Summarize Doppler assessment of valves including the various windows to use in evaluating each valve.
  4. List Doppler measurement techniques & method to quantify disease
  5. Outline chamber pressures with velocity/pressure conversion
  6. Evaluate timing of flow (systole & diastole) and correlate with ECG
