Abstract

Current methods of in vivo flowmetry lack reliability. Previously, we described a new computer-assisted ultrasound flowmeter (Bergeron et al, 1988). In vitro and in vivo test showed errors with this system to be less than 8%. Design improvements have been made on the original system. Its size has been reduced and measurement time has been shortened to 30 seconds. This paper discusses the clinical applications of this second generation system in vascular surgery.
