Our group is primarily interested in the imaging of blood flow, the construction of velocity profiles, and in determining volume blood flow in the cardiovascular system. In order to examine the factors limiting our ability to image velocity in blood vessels, it is necessary to interrelate system resolution constraints with the target model and its environment.
